Alexey Trofimov spent 3 years trying to capture baby seals on ice, until he met this seal pup.
Although usually shy in nature, when Trofimov was finally able to get close enough to this pup, it was more than happy to pose for a picture.
Trofimov has described the encounter as “a very rare and special moment”.
Is this not the cutest big eyed furry ball of seal you’ve ever seen?
Cannot deal with this adorableness.
