Stretching out


Gentoo penguins, Antarctica 

A Gentoo Penguin stretches his flippers against the backdrop of a brilliant blue glacier in the vast white wilderness of Antarctica. Penguins spread their flippers as a means to cool down on a hot day. Because the feathers covering their body are waterproof, it helps them retain heat. However the only way to release heat is through their flippers, where their feathers are not waterproof.
