I took up photography when I retired. I photograph a wide variety of things with nature and macro being at the forefront. I am fascinated by the intricate detail in tiny insects and bugs. I wanted to write a blog to share some of the beautiful places I have visited and the wildlife (mostly miniature) I have photographed.
Norfolk is well known for its grey seal population. This year has seen a record number of seal pups born at Horsey, over a thousand. It is spectacular to be able to view so many at any one time.
Soon after the seal pups are born the cows are ready to be impregnated again. They become very protective of their pups and try to keep the bulls at bay. The bulls can be very aggressive and it is not unusual for them to harm or even kill a pup during mating.
