Wildlife - Pacific Walruses Swimming

With a chorus of angry grunts, pacific walruses swim away from the Polar Star. We could clearly see their beady red-rimmed eyes as they strained to check out the ship, even while swimming away. It was amazing to me how tightly the groups would swim together - males, females, and young are almost constantly touching as they swim.

Technical information:
Camera: Nikon F100
Lens: Nikkor 80-400 VR
Film: Fuji Provia 100F
