19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Out of Element

I was walking along a fish pier on the Cape Cod coast when I noticed multiple seals popping in and out of the water. They seemed to be attracted to the scent of fish coming from the nearby boats. The day was cloudy and on the colder side, but I stayed outside for a while observing them as they swam around in a hypnotic pattern.
