Gorgeous shot. Must be pretty chilly down there "for the photographer I mean". I love to see such close up shots where you can actually study the animal and see all the little intricate details.
Paul Nicklen — 'Atlantic Walrus' Photo of the Day: Healthy wildlife is the positive sign of a vital aquatic environment. Remember, the walrus population is few in number and the walrus habitat is still pristine. As the human approaches, a wildlife community adapts to accomodate our company, too. Walrus and wildlife generally respond poorly to aggravation we humans also resist: Seawater pollution; foodsource destruction; or any disturbance by a motor vehicle. —Gary Conn
This has to be the best study close up that I have ever seen. And the background walrus, tho' a blur makes for a wonderful shot altogether. The animal is certainly not camera shy, and has looked headlong into the camera to have the picture taken! Love the all blue effect. j.e.s.
