In Spring this year, I was at The Sound when I spotted some seals basking on the rocks. A group of swimmers and their kayak support team appeared around the rocks and to my surprise the seals decided to join in. The seals popped up unexpectedly, swam alongside or followed the group, sometimes making enormous splashes when they resurfaced.
The Sound is a stunning location in the South of the Isle of Man where sightings of whales and dolphins are also often reported.

There’s this little stretch around the water at Ballannette that I call Butterfly Ally. This Cabbage White is my first butterfly photograph of the season, taken at the end of May.
