Emperor Penguin, Antarctica
The magnificent Emperor Penguin is perhaps the most beautiful of all penguin species. On fast ice in the Ross Sea, this magnificent male came over to check us out while we were photographing a group of Emperors, giving us a close-up experience that I will remember forever. He spent almost an hour with us, as he posed, preened and waddled through a truly epic photo session.
Contrary to the peaceful, dreamlike appearance of the final image, the conditions were absolutely awful with 50 knot winds created a swirling snow storm. Which created havoc with our camera gear and our ability to feel our fingers, but still what an epic experience!
