This is what most of our leopard seal shoot looked like: carnage. When the newly-fledged penguins were learning to swim they were no match for the much faster and smarter leopard seals. The seals were so well fed that often many of their hunts were for sport - they would kill and not eat their meal. Sometimes the seals would spend up to 30 minutes toying with the penguin before finally deciding to kill it. When they got bored half-drowning the birds, the way they finally kill their food is by grabbing the penguin and whipping it back and forth. This "degloves" the body from the feathers/skin and leaves just the meat for them to eat. It's a pretty dramatic behaviour, but as you can see in the 3rd photo, it's pretty hard to watch the prolonged deaths for several weeks. That's nature folks: animals got to eat and it ain't clean and glossy. I'm quit happy to be off the food chain.

I like the way you shared with us both sides of being a photographer. The viewer loves the gorgeous shots but forgets how much it takes to get them.
