FANTASTIC CATCH. Certain NO-ONE ELSE has ever posted one like this.
I'm shocked to see a shot of these FREASH WATER SEALS. Must be some adventure your on WAY OUT in Siberia.
Hope your planning on posting more from the area.

Happy Shooting

This is truly an exceptional capture, Alexander! The pose is terrific, the composition is so well-done...uncluttered, simple with exception color, but the level of detail and clarity is beyond belief! Many congratulations - hope to see it a Winner! #9869426
