Below are descriptions of directories containing the Wildlife Monitoring Camera photographs taken of the Upper Estero Far (UEF) harbor seal haul-out site within Drakes Estero from May 1 to May 7, 2008.

Please note that the 12:00 p.m. to 12:59 p.m. images are included in the AM directories. If these were included in the PM directories, they would be listed last, instead of before the 1:00 p.m. image.
