An adorable seal has made friends with a group of north-east paddleboarders.
Footage of the moment the seal pup surfaced alongside the group was shared on Facebook.
The curious animal seems to take a liking to one of the boards having a good sniff before swimming between the group.
It’s not the first time North Sea wildlife have come to visit folk at Stonehaven Paddleboarding.
Over the weekend they were joined by a small pod of dolphins while near Dunnottar Castle.
