While photographing the king penguins, a few of them were away from the  colony, isolated against the snow covered mountain. I got down on my belly to photograph them at eye level. I was admiring their beauty, and  feeling so connected to them. The snow and wind would come and go as I waited for them to do something interesting.

As the snow lightened up, they got less huddled together. Then they all lined up and each one was doing something different! I was excited to see each in their own pose.
It gave me a smile and I took the shot. After nearly a couple of hours  of being with them, I knew this was the image I had been waiting for.
