The Smiling Leopard Seal: Antarctica

A Leapord Seal In AntarcticaThis guy was one of the highlights omy trip to Antarctica.  It was during the zodiac cruise tour (small cruise boats) that we were driving around looking at glaciers that we spotted this guy.  The small piece of ice that he was sitting on was sitting against a massive glacier.  The drivers of the boats actually maneuvered themselves to move the ice sheet away from the glacier so that everyone could see him.  Once we got in front of him he got up from his lazy position and posted his body on the small ice boulder you see in the picture (click here to see him stretching).  Then he just looked straight at us and started to smile.  Its like he has been on camera before, very cool experience.
