    I was at Newburgh just north of Aberdeen today and there is a seal colony there. When I walked around the coast to where they usually lie on the beach there were no seals just birds then after a few minutes the seals appeared in the sea and were just as interested in me as I was by them, they were very obliging and as I walked around the beach they all followed me round in the sea. It is really comical as the whole colony of seals just stares at you the whole time.

    These shots are all with the G5 and 45-175 using both electronic and mechanical shutter, most are post cropped about 100% so the detail and clarity is really good, both the lens and camera performed very well, almost all the shots I took there were focused perfectly too, another credit to the camera and lens combo.

    Comments welcome.

    Nice shots! I like the last one, nice of them to oblige with such a nice composition of forms :biggrin:

    You did better than I did in Alaska, I found the sea otters really hard to photograph well with all the diving, rolling and moving around.
