5th Place Marine Life Behavior

Pedro Carillo Montero

"The Choir"


The Story: wo juvenile sea lions (Zalophus californianus) play under a shallow rocky ledge at Islote Los Lobos, La Paz, Mexico. While they seem to be singing in perfect harmony, I do not remember listening anything! Photographers are always sooo concentrated on their photography! What I do remember, though, was a fellow videographer being right in front on me enjoying this playful couple while I patiently waited for my turn knowing this behaviour might cease in the blink of an eye. Thankfully I manage to frame one shot right before they flew away to explore something else that had just grabbed their attention

Equipment Used:  Nikon D810 Camera, Nikkor 12-24mm Lens, Seacam Housing, Dual Ikelite DS-160 Strobes
