I don’t often like photographs of animals when they are staring straight at the photographer. This photo of a young Common Seal pup on the beach the other week is an exception. Cute or what?
I tend to be with you on the animal staring down the camera lens, but what a great shot here! Seals are quite adorable.
Thanks Jacob. Given the welfare of the animal comes first I tried to be discrete in approaching this individual, keeping well back and shooting with a long lens; but he was keeping a close eye on me! If I normally only get a shot like this I feel I’ve failed as the animal is aware I’m there but yes you’re right, seals, especially the pups, do tug on the heartstrings a bit!
