Seals of Georges Island

So when I got off the boat at Georges Island last weekend, a park ranger gave us a little talk about the activities that were happening, things to check out, etc. and one thing that she mentioned was that some seals had been spotted on one side of the island that morning. I thought for sure they'd be gone by the time I got over there but I was wrong! Luckily, I had my 70-200mm lens with me so I set my camera on a rock (no tripod) and hung out by myself (only a few other people came over!) and happily snapped away for the better part of an hour. The photos I got were still far away but with some cropping I was able to see the seals up close, including their sweet faces-

Tell me that last one is not waving!

Great photos! Glad to hear that you had a good time and found a great topic for your blog. I also got some photos of the seals and mine to were a little further away than I would have liked, I did get one that I liked in which a seal relaxing on a rock was in the same frame as Boston Light. If you have an interest, I posted more photos on my face book page. My photos are not great, I was more looking to document the trip.
