A seal in Øresund

Today was my lucky day - I was able to get a couple of photos of a nice harbour seal (Phoca vitulina, also called common seal) resting on the same small rock close to the Hittarp reef, where I have seen seals (and grey herons) before.

Regrettably I did not have a powerful enough tele lens to get really close, but by cropping the picture I was able to get some decent images. As I am not very familiar with seals, I am not quite certain that the seal actually was a harbour seal, but to me it looked like one. The other fairly common seal in Øresund is the grey seal. But to me the one pictured here seemed to be somewhat smaller than a grey seal.
