Penguin Platoon

Your Shot photographer Kitty Kono captured this penguin parade on South Georgia Island, a British territory in the Atlantic Ocean, just north of Antarctica. If you look to the far right, you'll see a wounded penguin. Kono notes that it had survived a leopard seal attack earlier in the day.
