Stellar Sea Lions up on a rock at Kenai Fjords National Park, Alaska. They were taking advantage of the sun breaking through the clouds to catch some warmth. These animals are the largest of the 'eared seals'; and only the walrus and elephant seals are larger in the pinniped family. They have had a fairly rapid decline in population around Alaska in the last 20-30 years for unknown reasons. The animals are presently on the endangered list.
