Artist's Description

Who says that penguins can’t fly? These macaroni penguins seem to be getting airborn as they “porpoise” for speed while returning to their hungry chicks back at the nesting colony on South Georgia. Continually leaping from the water is a very efficient way to make progress in open sea, and staying together in a group helps minimize the chances that a hungry predator will single out any individual. Catching this behavior with a camera requires a lot of luck and a fast shutter speed!
