I’ve been pawing through the old photo archive for some picture that I can then begin to blather about today. I found this one. It really is just a photo of a photo, but it seemed humorous enough to use. At California’s Año Nuevo State Park, researchers glue transmitters to the heads of elephant seals. Every year, these transmitters are glued to the seal’s head. They eventually fall off and are retrieved the following year, when the animals come on the beach each summer to molt. The transmitters track these elephant seals as they migrate throughout the year. This research hopes to answer some basic questions about how these animals live. Just to show that I actually do have some real photography chops, I submit the following, already posted photo of a real live elephant seal.
