Ow mum do I really need a bath? by

Another shot from my trip to Donna Nook on the East Coast of England over the winter.

Grey seal pups put on weight very quickly, feeding on their mother’s (called cows) fat-rich milk. Over just eighteen days they triple their weight (the suckling period). Cows stay with their pups during this period and do not feed, so they lose about 10lb in weight each day.

    Shaun, This is a perfect capture. beautiful detail and crispness. I am now going to try and get the money together to but the Canon 100-400 L. I also have a Canon EOS 400D. I usually use the EF70-300 IS USM for most of my shots. But I do Find the Image stabilization a bit of a show at times. This is great.
