On the subject of penguins

Looks like the inauguration, doesn't it? This amazing photo was taken on South Georgia Island. The photographer says, "This is not the largest colony of king penguins on South Georgia but there were over a hundred thousand breeding pairs in this location. The brown spots are not open spaces but chicks that have not fledged." from Flickr, by chuck12600 Take a look at it in the largest size: 3200 x 2135. Better yet, set it as your desktop wallpaper.

Not the largest? What? Penguins must really like to gather. Maybe I'll make a bunch of those sock penguins, and cluster them near a beach.
