Grey Seal Pup Profile by Shadow-and-Flame-86 Grey Seal Pup Profile by Shadow-and-Flame-86
A weaned grey seal pup on the isle of may, scotland.

Isn't she a beauty! :aww:

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.

What a gorgeous photo this is! I love the details you captured here, especially those beautiful 'eyebrow-whiskers' :) How is it by the way that the area around the eyes of seal pups is always wet? Are they tearing?

they are always watering, infact it is one of the 'warning signs' that a pup is very sick and needs medical attention if it has dry eyes, its a very bad sign for a seal.
