This character was a grumpy old male with a harem and was a bit annoyed at this dam fool homo sapien who got too close to him.
All alone on one of Dunedin's beaches and of course the tog had his digital camera set to give a one second review of the shot just taken.
So it was a considerable shock to see him lunging for me. Fortunately he wasn't that keen and I managed to get out of reach, though it was close!
But despite the stupidity of the tog it is a nice shot and the best he's got apart from another where the animal was asleep just a few meet away from a busy path across the sand down to the beach with HSs passing every few minutes.
"Curves" gone to top of page for some reason Grrr!
