Ovum

Ovum - Nature in Black & White
A female Grey Seal (Halichoerus grypus) plunges into a pool left by the retreating tide at Winterton, Norfolk, England. She's built up her reserves of blubber throughout pregnancy to sustain herself and her new born pup. The reflection forms an egg shape which seems to symbolise her motherhood. The image was captured just before the reflection was lost to the splashing water. I converted to black and white to emphasise the shape of the seal and the texture of its sandy skin.
