14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
For the Love of a Penguin

This photo was taken at Danco's Island, Antarctica during my first landing of the trip. The vision of seeing penguins up close was extremely surreal and breathtaking. In this photo, two Gentoo penguins were crossing paths on a "penguin highway" and stopped to pause and interact with one another.
