Photograph by @PaulNicklen taken while on assignment for @natgeo in #Antarctica // When penguin chicks head to sea for the first time, they are incredibly vulnerable as they lack the swimming skills of their parents. Leopard seals know they are weak and time their own migratory patterns to coincide with this mass exodus of chicks going to sea from the penguin colony. These Adelie chicks found themselves a moment of reprieve by hopping onto an iceberg. Then, it came down to a waiting game. As a bystander it is gut-wrenching to watch the drama unfold. The leopard seals need to eat and yet you hope for the penguins to make it out of ‘leopard seal alley’. To see the hard reality of a leopard seal eating a penguin, please #followme on @paulnicklen // With @sea_legacy @natgeopristineseas @cristinamittermeier @ladzinski @andy_mann @craigwelch #rhythmsofnature #hardreality #nature #naturelovers #instagood #love #picoftheday #photooftheday #adventure
