SEALED WITH A STARE - This penguin and seal seem to be having a staring competition to see which one would blink first.  The hilarious moment was captured by wildlife photographers Yva Momatiuk and John Eastcott while on a visit to South Georgia.<br />
<br />
The young Antarctic Fur Seal pup confronted the adult King Penguin after it emerged from the surf in shallow waters near to the beach.  The penguin was fortunate that this seal was just a pup as adult seals have been known to hunt penguins.  The encounter did not last long before the pair went their seperate ways at Elsehul, South Georgia in the Southern Ocean.<br />
