Sleeping pup - Grey seal (halichoerus grypus)
A Grey seal (halichoerus grypus) pup sleeping in the sand on the beach. The pup is still very young as it is wearing the fluffy bright white fur which, after some weeks it will shed and grow a much more stiff and darker fur that will help insulate against the cold waters of the high seas.
