National Geographic photographers have the coolest job.

Crankylitprof over at the blog Cranky Epistles shared a video with us that just blew my mind.

An NG photographer goes off to the frozen wilds to film Leopard Seals. These are relatively dangerous creatures so nothing is to be taken lightly with them.

On his first day he finds a huge mother leopard seal, who starts to bring him live food, thinking that he needs it. He doesn't take the food.

She then starts bringing him weak and infirm live food and again he doesn't take it.

Finally she starts chewing up the food to show him how to eat. Absolutely amazing.

Watch the very short film here

Nature is just wonderful.
