Leopard Seal - Antarctica

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Kellie Netherwood

During a zodiac cruise in Neko Harbour, Antarctica we approach a leopard seal resting on an ice floe. As we came closer his initial indifference to our presence was replaced by a warning growl. He was reminding us that we were the visitors and this was his home - a home where he plays by his own rules.

Location: Neko Harbour, Antarctica
