Many thanks to all for the C&C'S on yesterdays upload.

Back to mammals for today, namely Grey seals, these images were taken at Donna nook, Lincolnshire on a bitterly cold misty day.

Hope to be going back soon to have another go, fingers crossed for better weather

A telephoto lens + when they pup they come right up into the sand dunes, Lincolnshire wildlife trust have fenced an area where you can get good close shots and they also have wardens to keep an eye on them, making sure eager Togs don't take liberties. Remember these are wild animals and although used to spectators are still sensitive, they also bite!!

Great work MIke and it is great the respect you have for them, I prefer the ones taken at ground level but they are all really good.

A wonderful set of wildlife images Mike, you have really spoiled us tonight with this splendid selection. I think v1 was the perfect choice as the lead, most appealing

This is a superb set - I really like v4, 5, 6 and 8. I would probably have uploaded these separately... Smile
