California sea lion in the Sea of Cortez by Dennis Vandermeersch

LOS ISLOTES IS A SMALL ISLAND GROUP in the Sea of Cortez near La Paz. Mexico.  Among its wild residents is a colony of California sea lions.  Belgian photographer Dennis Vandermeersch says, “Getting pictures of the sea lions underwater isn't easy.  Luckily, they are curious and sometimes do a little dance for you.”  He used a Nikon D300 in a Sealux housing.
