Young grey seal at Bull Island, Dublin. Usually the seals - common and grey - are pulled up on the sandbanks, but this day there was none to be seen, except for two that appeared i nth water, like big wet dogs, curious about the crazy humans. Bull Island is a UNESCO protected biosphere reserve. This one had gotten nervous of me and dived into the water, leaving the main group. It soon got courage and reappeared, flopped back up onto the sand again. Wikipedia: Bull Island »
