Walrus Family, Svalbard, Arctic Norway

20120717-_C5A4589The walrus family consists of Mom, Child and Dad (from left to right). It is typical of these animals to protect the baby in between the parents. This was shot while bouncing around in a rubber Zodiac maybe 30 feet from the walrus. Some luck was involved in getting the focus exact enough while also having a high shutter speed. Are all happy families alike?
