06 st of November 2016, Argentinian Antarctic Station "Carlini" (Formerly known as "Jubany") - Potter Cove, Isla 25 de Mayo/King George Island, South Shetland Islands.

Close encounter with a southern elephant seal male (Mirounga leonina) who was resting by the beach, staring at me with an amazing and thought-provoking sight.
