Yesterday I photographed a new member of my Seal Group on the South Cornish Coast. This large male came closer and closer to us as we sat still on the rocks. He was diving for 3-4 minutes and surfacing close to us to check us out. Awesome experience with and incredible species! The Male is now called 'Noah' - and I am going to try and monitor his movements along the South Coast as much as possible.
This image show this large adult male, exhaling before he dives. The is common behaviour, as seals hold the oxygen needed for the dive with in their blood.
