There was something black against white snow over sea ice. I found it a seal soon when I came closer to it. While I was coming closer picking my e-camera out, it was looking around with its head up. I noticed the action and stopped stepping and waited for a while. It fell asleep again. I took photos of the seal from 70 meters away. But it rushed into the sea being aware of clickety-clack sound of my sled.
There was a big hole about 60 centimeters across and it had 6 or 7 of their bed holes by its side. The clue of their walking around was all left on snow. I was able to see the clues of them rubbing their nails and tails against snow completely. There are some slant holes leading under the sea. They drag themselves onto snow ground. Looking around, you'll see a seal napping over sea ice under the sun because it is already warm.
