Sea World San Antonio - Cannery Row Caper III

Welcome back! Today's post is the fourth in my Sea World Week series, comprised of shots taken during a weekend visit to Sea World San Antonio. The past two days have covered elements from the show "Cannery Row Caper" and today's photos are going to continue that theme!

The first shot is taken after the female lead character (Cookie I believe her name was) "accidentally" fell into the water and collapsed on the ground. The male lead (Dusty) and his companion (Clyde, I believe) happen upon her and Clyde moves in for C.P.R. (or, you could say "Sea-P-R"). I am not certain if this is a staged reaction or one of true surprise because the animals were not cooperating 100% and the sea lion did more/got closer than it should have, but I LOVE this shot!

Shortly thereafter the massive walrus (aka "Uncle Max") is introduced to the crowd. The question of "how are you going to make up for eating all of those fish?" was posed to Max, and he responds by demonstrating an exercise from the popular Sea World 90-X workout series...Ab Ripper Max!

Toward the end of the show, the sea lions did some tricks, and I got extremely lucky and happened to catch this shot of what appears to be one of the sea lions levitating in the air. Once again, I am thrilled with this shot, I got extremely lucky with the timing and just happened to capture this great scene!

Tomorrow's post will be the final in the Sea World Week series, complete with an "Old Fashioned Friday" shot from our trip to Sea World!

  1. Wow, I love today's edition to the series! I have a heckuva time trying to say which one is my favorite, if I had to choose I think I'd say the levitating sea lion, but they are ALL wonderful. I can't wait until tomorrow's post, this has been a great week so far, Brian! :)

  2. You must of had so much fun! I am so jealous! Great shots, I would love to see a walrus workout!
