Beady Eyes

Species: Leopard Seal | Location: Ross Sea, Antarctica

We were on a trip to the Ross Sea in Antarctica. The ship stopped on the way out of the sea for a zodiac cruise among the ice floes. We found a leopard seal that was hanging out on the ice. We didn't get too close, but I was able to zoom in and capture it in a close-up.

About The Photographer

I'm an avid traveler who is trying to see as many areas of the world as possible. My goal is to see these environments before they are significantly impacted by climate change. I was shooting Nikon, but switched to Canon in 2014. Macros of flowers and plants were my first SLR subjects, but once I purchased longer lenses I've added birds, mammals and pretty much anything that moves. After each trip I make presentations in the local community, to try to build awareness of these areas and the issues that they face. Hopefully this will encourage more people to contribute to the support of these fragile environments
