I captured this video with my GoPro on my DJI Phantom quadcopter. These beautiful elephant seals were lounging on "Piedras Blancas" point, offshore of the Point Peidras Balncas lighthouse. Only a couple seemed curious about the new "bird" hovering nearby. The rest were too busy snoozing in the afternoon sun.
They really are adorable and I feel fortunate to be able to get a peek into their world without disturbing them. By the way, did you catch the little guy frolicking in the tidal pool at the 2:54 mark? Too cute!
