A superb capture of a parent Brown seal and its pup. The POV, pose and facial expression of the parent are taken with excellent technical qualities and the BG is suitably OOF.
Nice one and TFS!

Great pose and shot - I can just imagine the verbal comment! The NZ species is quite a bit smaller and darker than the SA Species.
Weer een echte Vanderschelden. Scherp in schitterende natuurlijke kleuren en een prachtige compositie. Het lijkt alsof hij jou om hulp roept.
Mijn foto's van deze kolonie waren allemaal nog dia's (2002). Ik heb nog even gekeken vanavond, maar wat een verschil in kwaliteit.. Toen zag ik dat nog niet zo. Gelukkig zie ik nu jouw foto's. Laat maar komen!
Lovely shot Annick. i liked this so much. TFS.

good capture of these cute seals
i like composition, POV, sharpness and details
A fine double portrait in the midst of nature Annick, hope that bite was a playful one. The details are so outstanding that I think you had a tripod, or at least a monopod attached to your camera!

Super shot of this Brown Fur Seal and pup! Excellent detail it really leaps out of the screen and the f/4.5 has separated it from the background beautifully, really nice work mate,
all the best, Rick :)

This one is even better than the last.
You've captured these two brilliantly.
Excellent exposure again with fine detail and true colour.
I think you are right about the species too.
I believe ours is Arctocephalus fosteri as you said.
Cheers & TFS

Another intimate portrait added to my theme. Thank you. This is a great shot, technically as well a artistically :) the lighting has complimented the experssion of the animals and your DOF isolated the cluttered BG. TFS

What a fine portret of the seal you have made! The image is very good being extremly sharp and having very fine and naturaly looking colors. The pose of the animals is very fine as you have well chosen the moment to take the photo.
Thank you for sharing,

Amazing post. Great note and so wonderful shot of these beautiful animals. You have pictured a very touching scene and quality of the shot is outstanding as usual. Superb combination of razor sharp image of the animals (details are stunning) and fine smooth BG. Colour palette of the picture is fine, harmonic and very pleasant for look. My best regards and TFS.

Wow ! Is this is the same Seal that looked so ferocious a few frames ahead?
