Australian Sea-lion

These shots were taken at Three Mile Reef just off the coast near Hillarys Boat Harbour, Perth. There are quite a few seals around this area but we rarely encounter them under water. This one suddenly appeared and behaved a bit like a puppy!! It swam around us showing great curiosity and no fear, before going to the surface for a breath and rejoining us on the bottom. It disappeared just as quickly and left us wanting more contact.
