Caption: Seal in Antarctic waters. Seal at the water's surface in a tidal crack in an ice field off one of the Razorback Islands in Antarctica. Another seal and calf are lying on the ice in the background. This photograph was obtained during the British Antarctic Expedition (1910-1913). Also known as the Terra Nova Expedition, the primary expedition objectives were scientific. Led by Robert Falcon Scott, the shore party of 34 spent two seasons exploring on and around the Ross Ice Shelf. Scott and four others died in 1912 returning from their attempt to be the first to reach the South Pole. Photographed in November 1911 by Herbert George Ponting.
