Seals Rock – pat morss

Maybe the Great White sharks are moving south, because the seals are back at Brace Cove. Yesterday I watched for 20 minutes as the initial rocks became exposed.

First claims on West Rock and East Rock. Other seals were reconnoitering.
Testing security at East Rock. “You’re bleeding in the neck – go away.”
“I’m also bleeding, and I’m bigger. What are you going to do about it?”
Intimidation wins out, with a look of resignation on the defender’s face.
Meanwhile, there is an unwelcome intruder on West Rock.
And another invader on East Rock. “I’ll try being belligerent again.”
The smaller arrival is relegated to the side of East Rock – precarious
In an hour there will be plenty of low tide rocks for all newcomers.
