They really are such appealing little creatures Sylvia. It's a wonder they remain so apparently content lying as they all day and night on that cold and inhospitable beach!!!GrinGrin

Is he/she on his/her mobile? Cracking shot. I never get within 200 yards of our local seals before they scramble off into the water.

Seems quite resigned to the way things are, posing like this for you with it's head resting on one flipper: love this one for that reason amongst many, Sylvia.
