Hello Michael,
What an attractive shot of this beautiful seal family enjoying the warm rays of the sun. Love the composition and the focus is tac sharp. Wonderful detail and the colors of the adults hide as well as the pups is gorgeous. The exposure is just right and you got plenty of DOF. A winner in my book!!

Bonjour Michael,
Agréable valorisation des sujets dans leur environnement et sous une belle lumière.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
