Rescue personnel led by the Marine Mammal Stranding Center in Brigantine, NJ www.marinemammalstrandingcenter.org prepare to net a seal beached at the Delaware River near the Scudders Falls I-95 bridge. This character was spotted in the area for a couple of days and he was starting to look lethargic, so the professionals were called in. I thought he was dead, but he perked right up when the put the net on him. I literally had to go over the river and through the woods to get to a spot where I could make this picture, but it was worth the hike, the trek down a hill in chest-high undergrowth and the brush with the law for where I had my car parked.
