Two bachelor walrus...

were found slumbering in the sun on a sandy beach after about a one mile hike from our landing site on Edgeoya Island south of Kapp Lee this afternoon. We were able to approach slowly, from down wind, to about 50 m distance. While the one on the right took notice of our presence, neither were disturbed at all by our visit.

Here's a close up of the one on the right:
Spectacular. Awesome. Magnificent.
