This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

Outside looking in, a lone male elephant seal lurks at the edge of a harem. Another year of feeding at sea may give him the bulk and the strength to win his own domain.

See more photographs from the October 2008 feature story "Elephant Seals."

本月每日一图的主题是:国家地理杂志专题

一只孤独的雄性象海豹伏在雌兽群边缘,向里张望。也许在海里再生长一年,它就会有足够的体形和力量来争夺自己的领地。

2009-03-31 fix: elephant seal是指象海豹(Mirounga),walrus才是海象(Odobenus);象海豹属于海豹科(Phocidae),海象属于海象科(Odobenidae);象海豹也作sea elephant,海象也作sea horse。
