Pembroke June 2002 - Part 2



Some of you will have heard me bleating about how some of my pictures had been murdered by Microsoft as I was trying to get them off my camera... Well I got most of them back - of course they're nowhere near as good as I'd convinced myself they were while I waited for them to be recovered. At least they prove we saw a seal. As usual click on the first thumbnail and then on 'next preview' to step through all the pictures.

You can see the feeding 'hairs' on the 'arms' of this fan worm.
