    Nearly every Antarctic animal relies on krill in some way, making it a true keystone species.

    This is the most unexpected split photo I've seen. It's both a macro and micro perspective. The lonely krill seems to be checking for the presence of the penguin predator. At the same time, we can see the ice and landscape on the surface. It's mostly monochromatic, but the reddish krill attracts one's eye. Dramatic photo!
