Marching King Penguins

Among the tussock grass of Salisbury Plain in South Georgia, four regal King Penguins were travelling as a pack minding their own business and battling it out for dominance by extending their necks and slapping each other. Every once in a while, one of them would break out of their trance and curiously look at me. Using the green backdrop of the tussock grass found in their natural environment, I tried to add that extra "pop" for their already eye-catching golden-orange coloring.
