Elephant Seal – A Trail in the Aftermath of Passage

A Trail in the Aftermath of Passage

     A young Elephant Seal lolled surreptitiously in the gentle surf studiously observing the shore, waiting to make its move.  When a lull in the calamitous din within the beach-bound colony materialized, the seal knew the moment had arrived.  Struggling mightily in the soft sand, avoiding massive warring territorial bulls, the seal sought a safe, secluded spot.  It left a trail in the aftermath of passage.
