WARM HEARTS IN A COLD LAND
We love to think of penguins as little humans, even though they lead completely different lives than we do. These Gentoo Penguins were patiently waiting for the snow to melt at their traditional nesting colony at Port Lockroy, a British research station now converted to a center for visitors to Antarctica. It was summer, but there were still several feet of snow on the ground, and this species won't establish a nest unless it is on bare ground. So they are just holding hands, hoping against hope for a baby in their future.
