We have two new female American black bear cubs on exhibit!! They are 5 months old and weigh around 30-35 lbs. I THINK their names are Sun and Star. They were SO cute romping around their exhibit. It was very hard to get a good photo of them because they were so active, but a joy to watch!

Northern Elephant Seals (Mirounga angustirostris) at sunrise early light at Piedras Blancas, San Simeon, CA . 26 Jan 2013.

3/27/2013, this is now a featured photo on Wikipedia's

Looking south from the main observation area and boardwalk.
The Piedras Blancas rookery, on Highway 1 seven miles north of San Simeon on the California Central Coast, is home to about 17,000 animals. Because the tide was very high at ~ 5.5’ this morning, the elephant seals were especially crowded into this narrow swath of beach. (10 images in this set)

Photographing the Northern Elephant Seals (M. angustirostris) at Sunrise. Sat, Jan. 26, 2013, on a slightly foggy day that turned into a beautiful sunny experience. Mating, giving birth, fighting, yelling and squealing, and vying for very limited beach space, this Elephant Seal display is a must-see phenomenon, especially during the months of December, January, and February.
A Photomorrobay Meet-up. See photomorrobay.com and tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/photomorrobay/ and www.flickr.com/groups/photomorrobay/ for more information.
Shooting starts at 6:50 AM. Optional carpools to the San Simeon Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Overlook 34 miles north of Morro Bay, leave the Morro Bay Azure Street Morro Strand State Beach parking lot at 6:09 AM sharp arriving by 6:50 AM when the best shooting starts. A 9:20 AM high-tide brings the Alpha Male battles and mating scenes closer to the boardwalk thanusual. The best photos come from before 9:00 AM as early light can be very important here. Our past successful outings have been held between the dates of Jan. 22 - Feb. 2.

Use a tripod, and a lens reaching out to say 200mm to 300mm. 70-200 would be nice. There is a railing for handheld brace-shooting. Everyone welcome. No instruction.

See Friends of the Elephant Seal's www.elephantseal.org/ for more information. No restrooms at the site. Brunch usually happens on the return in informal groups at Cambria Main Street Grill, or in today’s case, the Cavalier Restaurant in San Simeon. Wiki en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_elephant_seal says “The northern elephant seal (Mirounga angustirostris) is one of two species of elephant seal (the other is the southern elephant seal). It is a member of the family Phocidae ("true seals"). Elephant seals derive their name from their great size and from the male's large proboscis, which is used in making extraordinarily loud roaring noises, especially during the mating competition. Sexual dimorphism in size is great: The males can grow to 14 ft (4 m) and 5,000 lb (2,300 kg), while the females grow to 11 ft (3 m) and 1,400 lb (640 kg). Correspondingly, the mating system is highly polygynous; a successful male is able to impregnate up to 50 females in one season.”

Post three of your best photos at the "Photomorrobay" www.flickr.com/groups/photomorrobay/ , and as many as you like at the "Elephant Seals, Northern, of Piedras Blancas" www.flickr.com/groups/elephantseals/ .
