Stackhouse Cove:  A pair of Grey Seals mating for around thirty minutes just off the shoreline,   (During thirty years of marine Photography this amorous old wrinkly is the largest old bull grey seal I ever saw,  Its girth was massive and it must weight in around 500kg but  it was amazingly gentle around the female considering his size which dwarfed her).
