    a grey (?) seal...

    This rather accommodating chap regularly visits Looe Harbour when the tide is in, to get his fill of mackerill from the fishing boats.

    Still checking my taxonomy, but I think it's a grey...

    ^^^ Yeah, and those big nostrils snap shut when it dives...very interesting body the seal has, with blubber to protect its organs when it dives etc.

    Cute l'il critter (but not as cute as penguins and otters, I'm afraid!)

    Ah, that's what those people were, they were into sub-aqua and their wet-suits were drying somewhere...

    Nice image you have here; I wonder if a polarizer might have taken out enough glare to see more of its body underwater. That would have been neat to see...

    Thanks for sharing!
