Caption: Grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) pup lying beside driftwood on a rocky beach. The grey seal gives birth to a single pup after a gestation of just under a year. When very young, they have the white fur seen here. A pup nurses for up to two months before becoming independent. The grey seal lives in large groups in coastal waters in the North Atlantic Ocean. It feeds almost exclusively on fish. This beach is located on the north coast of Scotland, near Cape Wrath, in the Highland region. Photographed in November.
