Norfolk Seals

One of the highlights of Barrie's and my recent trip to Norfolk was these delightful seals. They were certainly enjoying their day on the beach and I'm sure some of them were smiling at us - one even managed a wave!











I hope you enjoy looking at my pix as much as I did photographing the scenes.

Regards - Ann1e

Re: Norfolk Seals

Hi Annie... you should not show such pictures when there is a hunter around!

The meat is delicious.... sorry... can't help myself.

The pictures are gorgeous! Bring a lot of memories of earlier times of my life... smells, feels and tastes... the whole spectrum.

Looks like the waving one has been fighting!

Good sharp shots.

Re: Norfolk Seals

Nice photos, I like number 2.

Your weather looks a lot warmer than when I went to Donna Nook earlier in the year

Trausti - I will forgive you - I have not as yet tasted seal meat so cannot comment as to its delicacy!

Stephen - Yes, seals do seem to carry the wounds of many an encounter.

It's as natural to me as for other people eating pig meat... or bread.

It was a part of my normal food ever since I was a baby... and hunting was an integrated part of my daily life from 5 years of age.... along with fishing of course.

What it comes down to, is cultural differences. I always prefer natural meat that I have killed personally, over supermarket plastic wrapped, colour enhanced, full of medicine rests and conservants etc.

Being raised up in a community where it was normal for children to help out with slaughtering and processing the meat of sheep, horses, cows etc. it only comes through as normal for me to consider animals as food. Be it monkeys, crocodiles, snakes, pelicans... anything at all actually... as you can see in
of me fine dining.

Sometimes it is safer to shoot with a camera... and absolutely less bloody

We had just four days in Norfolk visiting friends but seem to strike lucky with the weather there even for our winter visits.

I too like No 1 for the waves but I think my favourite so far as the individual seals are concerned is probably No. 2.

This man's a carnivore! For goodness sake nobody post a picture of a whale while he's online - it'll give him indigestion!

Re: Norfolk Seals

It would take some time... but perfectly doable.... also depending on the species (size-wise).
