Grey Seal on Dune

Sometimes you get lucky. While I was waiting at some distance of a group of seals another seal got curious and started to approach me. Not as close as the previous time I was on Heligoland, but still close enough for a nice portrait.

  1. Nice shot! I have had a similar experience with animals – sometimes if I just stay still for a while they will get used to me and a good shot will present itself.

  2. en av mina favorit djur. sälen.känner att ja e nära den… men jag har aldrig i verkligheten varit i närheten av den levande. tycker om bilden för den säger mig vad sälen betydr för mig: graciös och knubbgoklumpi.
