Once weaned, Atlantic Grey Seals pups (Halichoerus grypus) are left to fend for themselves, when their mothers leave for good. This little pup just looked so sad! Taken at Donna Nook, Lincs last weekend in late afternoon light.

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

Cracking detail and saturation here Sylvia. Definately a bonus when they are on the top of the dune. Well waited for the right moment

Title says everything as the pup does seem to have a woebegone countenance: super shot of this appealing wee (perhaps not so wee) face, Sylvia.

He does look somewhat mournful Sylvia. Obviously missing his Mum.
