Pink Pingos (Adelie Penguin Chicks, South Orkneys)

Krys Bailey

Southampton, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

An endearing clump of fledgling Adelie Penguins (pygoscelis adeliae) – note the moulting mohican on the right. Adelies (with Emperors) are the world’s southernmost breeding penguins, only found on the Antarctic Continent or nearby offshore islands such as this – Coronation Island, South Orkneys.

Oh yes, the pink is from the krill they’ve been eating and rolling around in….. they’ll scrub up well once they go to sea.
