Cape Cross Seal Colony

Fur Seal Pup Suckling

(Blog Entry)

 

For Monthly Scavenger Hunt msh0907-13 Mammal. One of the distiguishing features of a mammal is that they suckle their young, as this Fur Seal mother is demonstrating

 

And again for msh0709-17 Got Milk - I try not to re-use shots in the hunt, but I don't see me getting a better shot for this subject!

 

...and for Photo Friday Mother Nature

    this is wonderful.... never seen a seal nipple before, they are so discretely recessed usually.

    It's great that your Large format takes us right into this intimate moment, and the Original size practically makes us into the pup itself. Wonderful.
