On the Lincolnshire coast, grey seal pups are born in November. Their mothers leave them on the beach when they go to sea to feed, at which times they are easily approached. I used a 500mm telephoto lens to maintain my distance so as to avoid disturbing this pup. Low late autumn sunlight brings its fur to life.
