Here is another photograph of a monk seal having a siesta on the beach at Poipu Beach on Kauai. This is a female monk seal and she is sunning herself on the pristine sand near the Marriott complex. Her skin is like a gray velvet that would be luxurious to touch. We all know that she is endangered and we are not allowed to be too close to her. However, my telephoto lens does a great job of “getting close” to her making for an adorable pose of this lovely lady.
