A group of charming seals showed their playful side as they posed and winked at a fortunate photographer in Western Australia.
Dylan DeHaas, a 29-year-old from Perth, managed to snap photos of these endearing seals as they frolicked in the water. The captivating images feature the seals smiling, winking, and even sharing a kiss with a snorkeler.
DeHaas, who has been swimming with seals for half a decade, mentioned that they recognized him when he entered the water off the north coast of Perth.
While seals are naturally curious creatures, they can also be territorial. DeHaas advised against swimming with them unless one has sufficient experience.
Despite their adorable appearance, which resembles that of puppies, seals possess a bite force 18 times stronger than an adult rottweiler.
As such, they must be approached with caution and respect. DeHaas revealed that the key to capturing stunning photos of these marine animals is to remain calm and never pursue them.
