Kaanapali Beach, Maui

Hawaiian Monk Seal

I was out for a dive one late afternoon as the sun was setting. I turned the corner around a lava rock wall and saw a monk seal taking a nap. I didn't want to get too close because they are a protected and endangered species, so I watched him from far away. He finally woke up and curiously swam right to me, putting his face right up to my lens.
