Getting close to the seals: who is watching whom?

Getting close to the seals: who is watching whom?

The seal season has started again for almost a month, and, like every year, I find myself with the same dilemma: are they our attraction, or are we theirs?

Seals, like all animals, are curious but, in their case, feeling safe in the water, they can show it even more by coming up to look at my guests and me.

And every time I think: why aren’t we humans, who are supposed to be the most intelligent species on Earth, able to enjoy the moment, the present, like they do?

While the seals follow us, they spy on us, and they look at us, they don’t think about the problems, about what their winter will be like, their future; they don’t think about the millions of problems that we, on the other hand, make up our minds and that often will never come true.

They live in the present.

And, when it happens, they come to enjoy those clumsy bipeds in front of them. Intelligent, perhaps, but in Nature, they would have no chance…

And, probably, this is why they suppress and trample it…
