Artist's Description

This adult female leopard seal is basking on the ice in front of Brown Bluff on the eastern side of the Antarctic Peninsula. She has positioned herself perfectly in front of an Adelie penguin colony and she is just now taking a break from the task of catching and eating young penguins. As our day progressed and she finally got hungry again, I watched in awe as she slid from her resting place and proceeded to catch and eat several penguins right in front of my lens. As I have already posted an image of this violent act I thought you might appreciate the more peaceful side of this apex predator.
