............and for some the journey never begins. The mortality rate for Grey Atlantic Seal Pups (Halichoerus grypus) is very low at Donna Nook. However, there are always some non starters - this pup was probably stillborn. Mother Nature usually knows best. This is a full frame uncropped image.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on yesterdays upload - always very much appreciated Smile

Very sad commentary on the lack of life for this poor little beast Sylvia. However it wont go away just because we dont see or hear of it. Thats Mother Nature.

Shall I be the first to critique as a Photo?

Well captured piece of nature Sylvia, and well exposed against the sand. The long distance here has given the natural pov looking low which works so well, and detail is spot on.

Now for some reason unknown to me, I cannot believe this has not received more attention, some on here would have gained so much for something half as good and yes they know who they are. Sums this up to a bloody 'T' No names so I think i'm safe Wink

I forgot to say did you get the one to the right of this, it had half of its head eaten away, but unfortunately missed the gulls feeding this year.

Nature in the raw Sylivia, it is a sad sight to behold and very different from the usual images of sealpups we see on this site.
