Nosy seal pup’s nose

Photographer: Renick Woods, Seattle

Photo taken: March 22, Shilshole Bay, Seattle

Photographer's description: “A harbor seal investigates my camera and me. Around this time of year seal pups show up and are always very curious about things. This one swam right up and smelled the camera. Camera used was the GoPro.”

Expert says: “What a fun photo! I love how the seal’s whiskers stand out because of the contrast against the green water as well as the depth of field and slight murkiness of the water that causes the pup’s body to fade. The ripples and little reflection we see add subtle texture to the top of the frame. GoPros have made it possible for us to capture scenes we don’t see every day and this one is spot on.”

-- Katie G. Cotterill, Seattle Times photo staff
