Harp Seal Pups Kissing!  Two harp seal pups meet each other on the pack ice of Canada’s Gulf of St. Lawrence, touching noses as they sniff one another. Pups are generally born in this region during February, spending about two weeks nursing from their mothers before heading off into the frigid arctic waters on their own. The decline of sea ice over the continues to warm and sea ice disappears, the future is uncertain for this species.

This photo was also one of the most ‘liked’ images from the @NatGeo Instagram account this year. Thank you for all of your support and I wish you all the best for the new year.
