Close Encounters of the Seal Kind

August 1, 2012

This series was taken near the Monomoy shark alley area frequented by the areas white shark researchers.

 

Let the feast begin.

 

Lucky capture of a seal taking on the tough duty of devouring a skate. But the most interesting part of this image is that it was taken dead smack in the middle of shark alley about 1/4 mile offshore. We watched this lone seal making a ruckus and obviously not paying attention for a few minutes secretly hoping that certain elements higher up on the food chain might suddenly appear.
