This week’s reader photo was taken by Jacqueline McGhie, from Duncraig, WA.
“Roughly a two-hour drive north of Perth is a town called Jurien Bay. Out on the small islands of Jurien Bay the Australian Sea Lion can be found hauling out. I was enjoying a snorkel around the area when this pup came to investigate me. Remembering to keep a distance, I still managed a couple of snaps before exiting the water,” she said.
