Cuteporter Abigail M. sent in one of these images, and the link led to a lot more. She explains: “Here are a plethora of adorable Australian sea lion photos by underwater photographer Tony Wu. They have all the elements of adorable animal photos: fish eye lens, big eyes, even bigger schnozzes :).” Quite blorpy, too. You can also read more about Tony here.
