After playing hide and go seek under the kelp for 1/2 an hour he finally got comfortable enough with me to make contact by first tugging on my fins, then I rolled over and sat on the oceans bottom trying to get a good picture of this fast moving seal, I finally got this decent picture when he must of saw his reflection in the lens. Photo taken at Anacapa Island with my Sea & Sea camera DX8000G with a .06 wide angle conversion lens about a 17mm WA equivalent
