Sea lions are pretty cute swine already, but a bunch of them examining curiously at a drone camera? It’ll become you squee inside.
It’s a slew was arrested by Australian photographer Jacqueline McGhie, who was in a boat with her boyfriend in Jurien Bay, Western Australia. They often spot sea lions playing in the irrigate, so McGhie knows their behaviour pretty well.
“The Sea Lions remind me of puppies, I’ve swum with these particular sea lions before in the warmer months and they’re ever so curious and playful. They mimic you and show off with their ridiculously good underwater aerobatic abilities, ” McGhie told Mashable via email.
But “its been” the sea lions’ anxious jostling to get a look at the couple’s brand-new monotone that caught them by surprise.
“It was really interesting to see them all so transfixed on the droning. I was worried about launching it in case the interference fright them but we stopped it far enough and it doesn’t show it would have bother them anyway.
“They were just so focused and strange about what is was. As soon as we moved the monotone they all shifted and followed it until we poised in one place and then the latter are pushing over each other to get a better review. Like I said, just like curious puppies! “
No, we’re not anxious at all.
