babies at the beach
I had never seen a pup this small before. I kept my distance so as not to disturb these two, though mom was definitely aware of me. These shots were taken with a 250mm zoom and cropped quite radically.
The pups are very advanced when they are born, with a natural instinct to swim. They are one of the few species of seals where the pups go into the water just a couple of hours after they are born. Even though they are swimming, they don’t search for food at this time. Instead they get nutrition from the milk their mother offers for the first few months of life. (from seals-world)
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY…..
