Werner Bollmann - After the storm

Werner Bollmann - After the storm

A heavy snowstorm just had calmed down when I found this harp seal pup that was miserably shouting for it's mother. Obviously it was extremely hungry. I approached slowly and all of a sudden it looked at me over it's back. A lovely moment that only lasted for seconds. Some minutes later the storm came on again and our group had to dash to the helicopter to leave the packice immediately.
