WHERE AN EMPTY NEST MEANS ENDLESS OPPORTUNITIES!
That is unbelievable and beautiful.Also, it is a synchronicity....go to my blog, my son's name is Nicholas Paul.We call him Nickle Paul. The photogapher's name is Paul Nicklen.Hmmm....
Nancy, when I heard this guy on NPR the other day, I was mesmerized and looked up his photos at their site. In the piece there he also talked about his experience with bowhead whales - incredible!
Amazing!Absolutely unbelievable!Thanks fo sharing Nancy.LoveDeboshree
It's good to know we can live with leopard seals in a pinch. This warms my heart.
This video should serve notice to everyone that our sea and sea creatures deserve our respect and protection. TBHITW and I are both scuba divers and have personally witnessed the curious nature, intelligence and beauty of life under the sea. Great post!! And what a great Mama leopard seal.
That is amazing. What an experience! Thank you for sharing.
WOW - this reminds me of reading the story of Shakelton about that area. The story was amazing! Thank you very much for sharing. I like your blog - I connected through another blog.
That is so beautiful...both on the part of the photographer as well as the mothering seal. We take so much fro granted and assume the worst when in fast, given as second chance, this seal was there to help. Yes, amazing!
That was so cool.
wow. warms my heart on a cool fall day.
Wow. It's amazing the nuturing that goes on cross-species.
Great minds do think alike indeed! ;o)I've had a chat with a Weddell seal (one of this seal's prey items) while in the ice-cuby water... but I think I'd be terrified to come face to face with one of these big fellas!
That actually brought tears to my eyes! Animals are so much more intelligent than we give them credit for. Wow!
That was beautiful! Thank you for posting it.
an incredible glimpse into the spirit of our cousins...loved it!!! great post, nancy!! just great!
This is amazing and it warmed my heart so much. I agree with scarlethue that animals are so much more intelligent than we give them credit for. The other day, I heard that cowfish are as smart as dogs and can be trained.
This was just beautiful - and underscores the fact that all living things are connected. Thanks so much for sharing!
I was not expecting this. Mothering creatures are all around us and we just don't see. She's a beautiful seal and I hope to God that she survives this heat wave coming.
My 21 yr old son was watching this with me and his reaction sums it up. 'Man, that's SICK!!!'
One word comes to mind: amazing. And I see it came to the minds of more readers. But wow. Beautiful. Nature has its ways :)
What really got me is the egocentricity of us humans to think that we are the only ones who understand how to care for other foreign, amazing creatures. Thank you so much, Nancy, for sharing this, which I would of course have missed otherwise. What a great story...
Beautiful...too bad all mothers aren't so caring!
important. thank you for allowing us and the world to see.a wonderful wednesday for you.
A lesson to be learned here.
Empathy and Kindness is not strictly found in humans only..This seal wanted to feed and nuture this strange species it found...out of some emotion it felt towards him...
Wow.. animals of all kinds never cease to amaze. That's just incredibly beautiful and tender.
i can honestly say nobody has ever brought me a penguin to eat, or pieces of a penguin, or even a dead penguin.and kudos to the cameraman for being vegetarian!
He is a brilliant photographer, what an experiance, Leopard seals can be so agressive. Amazing.
I'm speechless I am! Congrats on POTW mention.
Unbelievable, thanks for sharing...and POTW at Hilary's...Sandi
I too think it's unbelievable. Congrats on POTW!
That is so awesome! I love her!
Amazing pictures, and the narration gave me goosebumps.POTW mention, of course, most deserved.
Another example of how little we truly know about animals and their motivation and behavior. Such a beautiful story and with world class video to back it up. Thanks, you deserve the POTW from Hilary for this post. Congrats.
Hi Nancy! Thanks for posting this, it's so wonderful to see the true nature of the beast. It's very inspiring!!!:)
The photos are amazing as is the story. The gentle giant. Thanks for sharing this.
