Species: South American Sea Lion | Location: Chiloe Island, Chile

I was on an expedition to Patagonia and up the South American coast to Ecuador. We had stopped in Castro, Chiloe Island, Chile. On the way out of the harbor in the evening, I saw some sea lions jumping out of the water. It was hard to predict where they would come out of the water, but I tried to get a shot. Finally I guessed right and I was able to get a series of this sea lion jumping.

About The Photographer

Cropped marian pantanaal

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
