Snorting Seal

Snorting Seal - Nature in Black & White
I watched as this Bull Grey Seal settled into a pool of water left by the retreating tide at Winterton, Norfolk, England. It was dozing off and thoroughly relaxed. Every now and then its nose would surface and expel a snort of water. It reminded me of the Grey Seals ability to control its nostrils and keep them tightly closed when diving. At other times they are wide open and itÂ’s clear to see how it got its Latin name, Halichoerus grypus, meaning hook-nosed sea pig. I took a series of shots of this behaviour but this one was my favourite. I converted to black and white to focus attention on the explosion of water.
