Sealed with a kiss – Flickr pic of the day

This photograph was taken in Hout Bay harbour by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group member Narima Ismail.

Says Narima, "We went walking in the Hout Bay harbour area and came across this seal and its two handler "friends" sitting on the pier – these guys literally had the seal eating from their hands and lips. In order to attract the crowds, the gentleman featured in the photo took a sardine from his container, placed it between his lips and then the huge, wild animal gently took the treat from his mouth.

"This act attracted a crowd and from the crowd emerged two South African female tourists who wanted to touch the seal. This they did [and] they eventually ended up sitting on its rump and feeding it sardines. They seemed utterly chuffed with their wild life interaction; they tipped the handler and left with huge smiles and loads of photos."

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
