An Atlantic Grey Seal Pup ((Halichoerus grypus) on lookout duty at the top of a dune at Donna Nook last Saturday. Spent a very enjoyable day in the good company of Richard (MossyOak) and his wife Trish and Graham (Gray-Ina) and his wife Ina (Gezina). Wonderful sunny weather, mild and with hardly a cloud in the sky.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload, with a very special THANK YOU to Jenni (Jennialexander) and Mike (Greyheron) for the User Awards - really appreciated and highly valued Smile

Stunning shot Sylvia. Great light and low POV have combined to give the shot a wonderful sparkle and freshness. Terrific.
