The hilarious images were captured by Adam Hanlon, 50, at the Farne Islands in Northumberland, an area well known for its photogenic seal pups.

The confident seals are regularly caught tugging on a divers fin or using their mouths to play with diver’s camera equipment.

And this seal is no exception – even appearing to show the cameraman how to throw some shapes on its underwater dance floor.

Adam, a full time underwater photographer, said: “Seals are always very curious and always want to come and play.

“When they do it’s such an unforgettable experience. I really think they enjoy coming and seeing what we are up to.

“Each dive I go on is very different. One day I can be photographing seals and the next day I will be swimming with huge whale sharks.”
