Dark Pup Portrait by Shadow-and-Flame-86 Dark Pup Portrait by Shadow-and-Flame-86
Weaned grey seal pup on the isle of may breeding colony.

Please note, this photograph was taken from a hide during a routine survey of the breeding colony, please do not approach or disturb breeding seals with pups. Mothers will abandon pups if people come too close, and then the pups will starve to death.

**this shot won the 'sea animals portrait' contest run by :iconanimalsoftheworld: in 2013, thank you so much everyone who has featured the shot and everyone who voted for it! =)
