King penguins (Aptenodytes patagonicus) - Salisbury Plain, South Georgia
The feeling of being among hundreds of thousands of penguins is an experience that will remain with me forever. The penguins, individually small yet collectively immense, balance the accompanying landscape of mountains, glaciers and an incoming storm. Penguins are naturally inquisitive. As the one in the foreground approached and separated itself from the crowd, I knew instinctively that it would complement the shot.
