A leopard seal drifts next to an iceberg off the western coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Air bubbles released from the melting ice stick to the lens of the underwater camera. For these seals, ice floes are a place to breed and molt, and they provide habitat for krill, an important prey. (From “An icy world is in meltdown, as penguin population shifts signal trouble,” October 2021.)
