In the absence of any  cetacean images at present I thought you might like this little set of images of the Grey Seals at Strumble Head. The female had taken the pup for a little swim and settled on a patch of seaweed to suckle the pup. The big bull thought he'd chance his luck with the female but wisely kept a rock between himself and her. The pup took fright at the ensuing standoff and swam away only to get tangled in the kelp. Mum came to the rescue and pup made it safely back onto the pebble beach.

Mum to the rescue.
Back to safety.
