14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

This magnificent beauty was lying next to the shore in the Monterey Bay area. The area is environmentally aware and I have no doubt that the respect for conservation in this location must be felt by these creatures. We need to tread lightly wherever we are and this area of the country exemplifies this.
