This was taken from a boat whilst looking for dolphins. It’s a seal eating an octopus just off Sorrento, Mornington Peninsula, Australia. The image was taken on a Canon Eos 1V using Kodak Supra 400 colour film – not a bad film.

Yanni has been capturing and documenting life and events on camera for three decades ever since his father gave him an old Pentax film SLR camera in 1982 .
He has also been working in digital art since the late nineties, from his graphic designs and collages to the complex photo realism of his sci fi / fantasy art.

    Thanks for the comment Josie – Yes and I haven’t seen this sort of thing since – Well I guess one has to be out in the wild to see the wild.
