A young grey seal gets dumped by a wave

I went to see the pupping season of the Grey Seals on a local beach and managed to watch how some of the young seal curiously checked us out - probably as intrigued as we were. This one was caught unaware by a crashing wave and I was in the right place and the right time to capture this wonderful moment in time.
