WIDE EYED and staring straight down the lens of the camera, this intrigued seal is ready for his close up. After a day of playing on the beach with friends, the grey seal spends a few minutes nudging the photography equipment with his nose before striking a pose. The adorable seal was photographed by Italian aerospace engineer Guido Muratore on a trip to Donna Nook, located on the coast of Lincolnshire. The 26-year-old, of Turin, Italy, says: ‘I came quite close to the seals trying to get the perfect picture. This pup saw me and it was absolutely not scared of the camera at all.
