Harbour Seal -10"x7" watercolour

Monday morning I saw a squirming speck in the distance on the ice in the basin.

When I looked closer with binoculars I could make out a harbour seal having a private party jittering and jiving to an ancient song.

It was -20c the open water behind her steamed from the freezing air.

She lay on ice that had rippled waves of snow that looked like white water.

The harbour seals are birthing their calves and have been for the past week.
