Default I've been filming these incredible seal pups in new zealand

I've just got back from new zealand (fantastic btw) and took a bit of time to photograph albatross. one of my favourite birds. huge and so majestic. not easy taking pictures from a rocking boat
These are stills from my latest video which is actually focused on seal pups, I found a river in the woods , a stream really, where all the seal pups go to play in the daytime! incredible sight.
I'll post a couple of stills of the birds below ..

Great captures...now how about posting some seal pups. Is the last bird some sort of raptor?

Great series, super sharp. That last bird looks like a Kea.

I like the 3rd and last shot, the 1st 2 shot your subject blends to much into the back ground.
