King Penguins, Falkland Islands

Photograph by Gavin Emmons, My Shot

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Photos

These king penguins were part of a breeding colony photographed in the Falkland Islands, their spectacular coloration on full display. I liked the intimacy portrayed between an adult male and female in the moment.
