EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a breathtaking moment of a close encounter with a magnificent leopard seal in the pristine waters of Astrolabe Island, Antarctica. The image showcases the raw beauty and power of this apex predator, known scientifically as Hydrurga leptonyx. In this color image, we witness the grace and agility of the leopard seal as it glides effortlessly through the water. With no people in sight, we are given an unobstructed view of this incredible mammal in its natural habitat. Its sleek body and flipper can be seen clearly as it moves swiftly through the ocean. Leopard seals belong to the family Phocidae, also known as earless seals or true seals. As carnivores at the top of their food chain, they are formidable predators that dominate these icy waters. Their striking markings and powerful jaws make them one of nature's most impressive hunters. Photographer Steve Jones has skillfully captured not only a remarkable animal but also an extraordinary moment in time during his Elysium expedition to Antarctica. This photograph is a testament to both his talent and dedication to capturing wildlife photography at its finest. Immerse yourself in this mesmerizing underwater scene filled with motion and wonderment. Let your imagination take you on an adventure alongside this majestic sea leopard as you explore the vast depths of our planet's oceans through Steve Jones' lens.
