Sea Lion versus Salmon

Had quite an experience yesterday, watched Sea Lions hunting salmon. They devoured numerous salmon over a two hour period. The sea lion bites the belly out of the salmon first, rich with eggs, and then actually acts like it's playing with the salmon before swallowing it. Anyway, here just one image but I have plenty more I'll post, if they're not too graphics for everyone.

very cool - that's one salmon that's not going in a can
Thanks Phil, and you are so right plus a whole bunch more won't make into the can this year.
Well captured. Not many Sea Lions here in Wyoming lol
Thanks Bill.
That must have been a lot of fun.
Thank you Allan, fun indeed it's incredible to watch this type of action.
Excellent action shot! Looking forward to more!
Thanks Karen, I sure do have many more showing the aggressive nature of the sealions during this time.
