Once you get to them emperor penguins are easy to photograph. After initial curiosity they largely ignore your presence and return to their usual behaviour; in this case a pair re-connecting after returning from fishing off the Ross Sea ice edge. I was totally entranced by the mimicking of their submissive curves and the extraordinary pink colour in their bills, the yellow on the neck and the black line running hard into the pure white.
Taken on Nikon F.4. 135mm lens. Kodachrome 64. Aperture F11.
