A young penguin swam into the "jaws of death" of a leopard seal in Port Lockroy, on the Antarctic Peninsula, in this photo by underwater photographer Amos Nachoun.

The photos were taken in 2009 while Nachoun attempted to capture a series documenting how frigid water leopard seals hunt.

Young penguins are at higher risk of predators because they are not yet aware of the dangers, according to information provided by the photographer.

He looks more intrigued than scared to death. Maybe he wasn't that bright and he was thinking "Is that a herring I see down that big hole. I might have a go at that one"
