Hundreds of elephant seals huddle closely together as they lie on a beach.<br />
<br />
The large animals leave no room for others as they bask in the sunshine.<br />
<br />
One of the elephant seals can be seen popping its head above the sea of brown and grey to peer around the crowded beach.<br />
<br />
Nature photographer Samuel Morris, 33, took these shots of the seals sunbathing at a beach in Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery, near San Simeon on the Californian coast, USA.<br />
