19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Penguins swimming alongside the ship, Antarctica.

While our ship traveled alongside various icebergs, including one the size of Manhattan, sea life periodically appeared. This photo captures penguins gracefully swimming and "jumping" alongside the ship. The are graceful and athletic in the water, especially when compared to when they are "navigating" on land.
