This cuddly baby seal was spotted sunning himself at Felixstowe – and one lucky photographer managed to snap the perfect picture.
Ben Adams, born in Ipswich but now living in France’s Chamonix Valley, was in Felixstowe on Sunday, October 7 to photograph the coast after recent heavy seas.
He spotted the cute creature and quickly whipped out his camera to capture the moment the seal pup raised its head.
Mr Adams said: “I must have been about a foot away and the seal had no problem with it at all.
“There are quite a lot of seals in the water at Felixstowe and you can see them regularly from the Ferry – but I thought people would like to see this seal up close and personal.”
Worried the animal was stranded on land or in distress, Mr Adams was reassured by local people that the mother of the pup was a regular sight on the town’s seafront and the
pup was in no immediate danger.
