Seal Birth

On a warm summer day I was paddling in a quite bay when I spotted the Seals.
The big males were the guards so I gave them lots of room as I drifted into a channel where I could see the females on shore. It is really important that I don't disturb them so I just stayed in the kayak and shot some video, hand held in the bright sun. It was so bright that I couldn't see what was happening, just that the seals were wiggling around and some had pups feeding

 At one point one of the males swam up the channel nearby and gave a low grunt so I knew it was time to move on. It wasn't until I watched at home that I noticed the seal seems to be giving birth.The video is authentic hand-held with a  digital zoom with some of my original music.
