17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest
A cautious Adélie penguin peers over the edge of an ice flow while his companions wait to see the outcome. While exploring Paulet Island in Antarctica, these beautiful birds would come up to you, curious to figure out what kind of penguin you are. But when it came time to enter the water they all huddle on the edge, hesitant to be the first one in. Orcas and leopard seals may lie below the waters surface. But once the first one goes in, they all go in massive group, leaping into unknown danger.
