Babies, Nose to Tail. Southern Elephant Seal Pups, Macquarie Island by 

Southern Elephant Seal Pups (Mirounga leonina) on the beach enjoying the sun at Macquarie Island, Southern Ocean, Australia.
Since there are on average only 5 sunny days a year on Macquarie Island the wildlife really appreciate it.
After being weened the pups lie on the beach metabolizing their fat ready for taking to the ocean.
