A – Z Challenge : H

H is for Haul Out

Just past Red Rocks on Wellington’s South Coast is a “Haul out” location where seals spend the winter (in Wellington, May – September).  This particular group is apparently made up mostly of males – younger ones and others who have not succeeded in mating.  They come ashore to fatten up (in the hopes of better luck next year?)

The location is round a bend in the coast – and approaching the group you smell them before you see them

  1. Wonderful shot. Seal looks like a sculpture ‘evolved’ from the rock.
