Antarctic Animal Encounters - Fur Seal 5
Safe distance, sizes the situation up...

He jumped into the sea and to my relief I didn't slip on the wet rocks (maybe not the best place to do it) and become a fur seal chew-toy.

So while I was better on the land, quicker and more agile, he of course was master in his element and I couldn't even go there in what I was wearing as despite it being a relatively warm sunny day, the sea temperature was at about 0°C.

So he swam about a bit, probably trying to entice me into the water in a way that worked with his seal-mates when they get each other to play chasing games in the sea. I read this picture as a "well you couldn't even catch my tail flippers" type of message, then waving the flippers at me as a taunt.
