Stefan Christmann. Penguin Parents and Chicks.
Two 4-month old emperor penguin chicks are begging for food from adults that have just returned back to the colony. The youngsters as well as the adults identify each other by the unique pitch and rhythm of their calls.
Stefan Christmann, born in 1983 in Koblenz, is a nature photographer and filmmaker from Germany. From 2011 to 2013, he spent 15 months as a physicist at the German research station Neumayer III in Antarctica, photographing the unique beauty of the southern polar winter. He was particularly interested in the emperor penguin colony in the neighboring Atka Bay. He’s been captivated by this charismatic bird ever since.
