[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Three seals looking like they would just leave for a trip. In fact they are just resting on the scottish coast.

The harbor (or harbour) seal (Phoca vitulina), also known as the common seal, is a true seal found along temperate and Arctic marine coastlines of the Northern Hemisphere. They are found in coastal waters of the northern Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, as well as those of the Baltic and North Seas, making them the most widely distributed of the pinnipeds (walruses, eared seals, and true seals).
With an estimated 5 million to 6 million individuals, the population is not threatened as a whole
