Summer Visitor


Over the Christmas period of the summer season, a Mum seal and pup stayed awhile near Dromana beach.
A sign on the rocky steps leading to the beach here warned the curious to stay away and give them space.
I was able to take this photo from the beach wall of the baby playing in the waters of Port Phillip Bay.

Now thats what I call fine whiskers! Sadly I no longer live adjacent to the beach so I rarely see such creatures. Have a great New Year Gemma.

What a precious baby seal. I know you were thrilled to be so close to him. Your second close up shot is awesome...so much texture and detail to the picture. The water in the first one is stunning. Such nice photography. genie

The pup is just adorable. You were so lucky to have seen this little fellow. The sign sounds like a good idea, I would imagine Mama would not like anyone near her baby.
