Stellar Sea lions Alaska's Glacier Bay

Stellar sea lions basking in the morning sun near Alaska's Glacier Bay. While on a skiff tour on a very cold but clear September morning , we noticed a group of Stellar sea lions all trying to get on the best rock to soak up the rays. The large male kept most intruders off of his rock except these 3.
