Coastal East Lothian : Seal Pup, Belhaven Sands
Coastal East Lothian : Seal Pup, Belhaven Sands
One of a series of hastily composed and snapped pictures of this seal pup. Every time I stopped walking to take a photo, this seal would head straight for me, dragging itself across the sand quickly with its front flippers.

Bearing in mind the sharp teeth and infected bite of seals I was afraid that it wanted to bite a chunk out of my bare legs (I always wear shorts and walk barefoot on this beach). So, as I couldn't safely get close enough for any good close-up photos, these snaps will have to suffice.
