Leopard Seal Surprise!

As we were photographing this sleeping Leopard Seal we were very surprised to see this Gentoo Penguin blast out of the water and land very near one of its feared predators!  Before the Leopard Seal could wake up, the Gentoo Penguin quietly walked to the edge of the iceberg and jumped back into the ocean undetected.

    What a catch! It’s kind of like humans traipsing through the woods to emerge face to face with a sleeping bear.
