Sea Lion -- Sea of Cortez. As described earlier, Sea Lions tend to be both curious and very playful. They are extremely fast and very acrobatic in the water, twisting, circling quickly and making sudden turns at the last minute. This one was swimming towards me and at the last second, veered off to the side during the moment this image was captured. This one seemed to want to engage in a game of chase, by coming at me and then wanting me to chase it -- not a chance that is going to happen.
