"A Face Only a Mother Could Love." Male Southern Elephant Seal by 


Close up portrait of a non-breeding male Southern Elephant Seal (Mirounga leonina) on Macquarie Island on a sunny day Southern Ocean, Australia. Note the dribbling nose.
Since there are on average only 5 sunny days a year on Macquarie Island the wildlife really appreciate it.
Canon EOS, zoom lens.
