[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This grey seal (Halichoerus grypus) caught a garfish right in front of me. The garfish school breached first and less then a second the seal followed leaving me startled. Wehn the seal resurfaced it had caught this big garfish (belone belone) and took it's time killing and eating it. It caught three more while I was shooting
