Flat Beachings

Male elephant seals are ungainly creatures.

In the water their heads bob up and down as they swim through the waves, weightless in the buoyant ocean. On land, however, they're laden down with blubber and make a slow stately progress up the beaches, noses flapping in the breeze, pausing when it all gets just too much.
