Charlie Bird – Photo Journalist, with baby seals as subjects gains a new about the joy of love and curiosity

Charlie Bird meets seals while travelling through Antarctica following the route of explorer Tom Crean’s final expedition alongside Ernest Shackleton aboard the Endurance in 1914-15.




I had come across this incredible video on Facebook first and shared it.  Then with a search found it on YouTube.  It is a short story of a professional photo journalist wanting a great shot of a baby seal.

Listening and watching the joy shown by the photographer was unbelievable. Children are the most trusting in pretty much every species.  Unfortunately it also makes the vulnerable, but not in this case because a photographer and crew hunt with camera gear and not guns and baseball bats.
