A young harbor seal took the opportunity to tuck inside a moored kayak while the owner was out sailing in Puget Sound at Burien on Saturday.

Ethan Janson spotted the little guy.

"I was able to capture these moments minutes before the captain returned to reclaim his property," he said.

Janson is the photographer who recently created a beautiful time-lapse of the sunset at Mount Rainier and the seal pup surfboard slip and slide.

He said as a former sports photographer (now a dentist), photography has always been his favorite hobby. 

"With recent advances in quality of remote security cameras, I am now able to quickly record events when I see them happen, and with my waterfront cameras, there is always dynamic activity here on Puget Sound," he said.

"For me, the key is finding ways to remotely record wildlife up close without disturbing them, and now I can do it from the comfort of anywhere on the internet!"
