A rather snotty-nosed wild Atlantic Grey Seal Pup (Halichoerus grypus), taken at Donna Nook, Lincs last December. I was lying prone in the grassy dunes, focusing on some seals further away, when this youngster popped its head up. A near full frame capture, handheld, taken from 4.3m away.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload - always much appreciated Smile

Wonderful Sylvia, a great example of how putting the subject right in the middle of the frame can work
