18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Leopard Seal on Ice Floe

I was on a trip to Antarctica. We were out on a zodiac cruise, looking for wildlife. Our driver spotted this leopard seal on the ice. We slowly motored over to take a look, without disturbing the seal. The driver went by several times, turning the zodiac so that everyone had a good look.
