Fatty cuteness

I revisited an old haunt last week, the grey seal pupping ground. Most of the pups were already at the immensely fat doe-eyed ball of fur stage.

It is possible to get ridiculously close here. This pup was asleep against the fence. Shot taken vertically down at a range of maybe 3 1/2 feet.


Another fence hugger. There are warning signs every few yards to remind the less wildlife aware that seals have big teeth and bite when they're scared no matter how cute they look. Note the total absence of a neck.
