The Story: Steller sea lions are extremely curious. When I was diving at Norris Rocks in British Columbia, this group of Steller sea lions came to investigate the strange visitor that had entered their world.  Steller sea lions are listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List. I hope this image captures their magic and inspires people to want to protect this beautiful species.
