Get back you've been warned!

By GeorgeLedger  
Whilst I was taking photos of this obliging seal pup. I suddendly heard a warning bark from its mother then became aware of her moving quickly not towards me but a family of four who had walked up to my left to take their own photos. Not only did this upset me but certainly upset the pup's mother.

There are warnings all around to be careful as the seals can move vey quickly and Bite! I can now vouch for how acurate the warnings are about their speed luckily I can't verify if they bite.

Judging by the visible tooth I certainly wouldn't risk a bite! Very tight crop, would like to see a little more of Mum's head but great all the same. Sandra

Beautiful shot with the pup perfectly framed by the mother. Personally I would have cropped a bit off the top because the eye distracts i.m.o. Otherwise it's a real beauty.
