21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sneak Peek

As low tide approaches in Rialto Beach, a feeding frenzy ensues with wildlife taking on the ocean’s creatures from above and below. During the main course, a harbor seal takes a quick peek above the ocean’s waves to see a brown pelican gliding into the surface with a break in the action.
