Breakfast with a seal

The next time you sit down to a quiet breakfast, think yourself lucky that you are not a seal!

I had risen early to capture the sunrise at Portmellon, Cornwall and as the light grew I was surprised to see a couple of seals at the edge of the neighbouring cove (surprised as I never seem to find one when I'm actively looking!).

This one had caught a very large fish and it was only a matter of minutes before the gulls had realised this and decided to try their luck at sharing a piece. As you can see in one of the images, one got too close and was almost part of the seal's breakfast too. From start to finish I was able to watch the seal for about 15 minutes before it took it's last gulp and swam off around the headland.

I was glad I had my 600mm lens handy as the seal was at least 500m away and I wouldn't have got anything more than a black spot in the photographs otherwise.
