An image recognized in the UK’s Natural History Museum’s Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition shows a herd of seals atop a piece of pack ice and also puts the bleak future of the environment in sharp focus.
The photo, by Spanish photographer Cristobal Serrano, was taken with a drone flying above the Errera Channel off the coast of Antarctica.
Small details make this picture a microcosm of the realities facing life across the world: Not only the density of these seals clustered on the ice, but also the bottom right corner of the floe breaking off, creating an even smaller surface for them to move around on.
