2.34pm: The newborn pup

2.34pm: The newborn pup

Newborn pup, sheltered from other nearby seals by its mother. It didn't feed for a while after birth; I was expecting this to happen pretty much straight away. Another cow got a bit close at one point and the mother chased it off. The whole sequence was wonderful to watch and I feel extremely lucky to have been there at just the right time. Huge thanks to the mother for managing to fit it all in before the sun finally dipped behind the sand dunes!
