Harp Seal Pups

The Harp seal pup in the mid day sun. Last month out on the ice, off the Magdalen Islands. This was one of the best days ever. 
Met the most interesting people out on the adventure which really made the trip.

This little pup is about a week old. They stay white for about two weeks until their first molt. This young they are actually too fat to dive. They just float around and paddle for the first swims.

National Geographic was getting amazing video of the pups from under water. I stayed up top and took photos this time.
