Emperor penguin rookery

Emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) rookery on sea ice. The grey-feathered chicks are three months old. The adults feed them by regurgitating fish. These are the only penguins to breed in the Antarctic during the winter. Each pair produces a single egg, which the males incubate on their feet, surviving the extreme cold by huddling in large groups. Males fast during the two month incubation period and lose almost half their body mass by the end. The emperor is the largest penguin, standing around 115 centimetres tall and weighing 30 to 40 kilograms. Photographed at Cape Washington, Antarctica
