A lone Monk seal resting in the middle of the afternoon on a beach on the island of Kauai. She has been coming to nearly this exact spot every day for a week or two as of this photo and is one of only 1100-1300 in the world. Most live around the Hawaiian islands but there is a small colony in the Mediterranean sea as well.

She was sleeping there for a few hours. Then return to the ocean, then come back up on the beach at roughly the same time the next day, every day. LOL

Seals are very rare where I am from I got only 1 photo just by our bridge this winter and that's it. It was a fluke we used to get them all the time.
