Gorgeous photos in this one!

Review by

Great photography, especially of the leopard seals and of South Georgia Island. Photographers seem to be an invasive sort (I've had to deal w/ them on several of my jobs and they are a true pain in the ass!) and I'm sure the animals would rather be left alone. That said, the pictures are remarkable. I also suspect that I could have lived w/o them.
