Grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) pup on seaweed-covered rocks. The grey seal gives birth to a single pup after a gestation of just under a year. 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. These rocks are located on the north coast of Scotland, near Cape Wrath, in the Highland region. Photographed in November.
