See pictures above and below:
Top: attacked (no exaggeration—it happens) by a sea lion on Stewart Island, NZ, on February 10—I was in his space, and he wanted to nap on the beach after ingesting a large fish (and, yes, I was that close—no telephoto lens!).
Bottom: Home in VT, February 14—2.5 feet of snow, temp minus 4º F., wind gusting to 40 mph.
(More NZ commentary-pics to follow.)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
