Life is pretty easy for weaners. Mostly, they sleep on the beach.
these two are still losing their black newborn coats. They shed the black fur when they wean and acquire the brown, tan and silver of juveniles.
The weaners sleeping around this adult bull have mostly acquired their new coloration. This male looks pretty good but many are very thin. They've spent three months on the beach without food. Good thing they were fat to start with.
This one definitely shows the effect of long months without food.

Beautiful beach weather, although we need rain. Lots of whales traveling through, too.
