An adult male elephant seal does not react kindly to another male in the area around his harem, and has the scars to prove he's earned his little spot on the beach.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was captured on the remote island of South Georgia, in the Antarctic Ocean.
Time
Morning time
Lighting
Only natural lighting
Equipment
Canon 1DX, Canon 600mm f/4 lens, tripod
Inspiration
Seeing a male elephant seal go after another male seal was one of my bucket list items, and seeing it happen right in front of me while I had my camera all setup was a chance of a lifetime.
Editing
Some colour correction and minor dodging and burning
In my camera bag
Canon 1DX, Canon 5D4, 600mm f/4, 300mm f/2.8, 70-200 f/2.8
Feedback
Be careful! The male elephant seal isn't interested in humans, but if you are between it and another male it will have no problems crushing you and/or your gear to get to that male. They can move very fast!
