Crabeater Seals Feeding

Crabeater Seals Feeding
by Florian Ledoux

Aerial view of Crabeater Seals feeding at the edge of the broken ice. It was an incredible moment as they were so many of them and they were breathing and diving almost synchronously in a limited free ice area. I counted probably more than 100 seals. The Crabeaters do most of their feeding at night (like here 9-10pm). They can dive as deep as 430 meters although feeding dives are usually around 30 meters.â € I was stoke by the number of animals, I could not believe the beauty of what they were creating with the ice, Nature is ART!
