Camera Critters - Short Video of Seals at La Jolla, California - September 2010


Eureka! I have just joined the ranks of learning how to put a video on my blog again. It's been a long time and I am keeping my fingers crossed that this will work. It is one out of my archives, of several seals on the beach at La Jolla in California back in September 2010. There is a bit of a squiggle at the end where I forgot to turn my camera off, you'll hear me for a few seconds and fortunately you don't get a long bumpy ride before I realize I still have my camera on!

Please double-click on the video to enlarge it to your screen.



My thanks must go to the Crafty Gardener in Ontario, Canada whose post I read here about uploading a video to YouTube. I had tried to do this once before quite a while back, when the old way of uploading to blogger didn't work anymore. After reading CG's post I tried again, with a little more patience than I had that other time apparently, and was successful.

For other seal photos that I have taken, you can click on the tag below this post, entitled 'seals'.

Thank you Misty for hosting Camera Critters.

Thank you. They are so graceless on land and so glorious in the water they almost seem like two different animals. They looked plumb tuckered out in those shots. Thanks for perservering.

The video worked great. Loved seeing the beach and seals... I could almost smell the salty air and feel the sea spray. Thank you. I'll have to go read that post about YouTube.

I can't turn the sound on because Art is sleeping next to me. I loved seeing the seals resting and playing on the beach. That one seal was really having fun digging that hole. How cute!

Enjoyed that, Denise. Now that you have the video know-how I expect more lovely things to look at.

There were quite a few of the little guys werent' there? I wouldn't mind hanging out at the beach - it's 28 degrees here this morning. :)
I love the sweet face on the seal in the still image.

they are absolutely fascinating creatures to watch. I'm so accustomed to freshwater life, but the oceans offer a whole different array of life to watch. this is a really fun video, I'm glad you stuck with it and finished, as it's a wonderful thing to share. I haven't yet gotten up the nerve to try my hand at putting together a video, but you've inspired me! happy weekend to you Denise.
