King Penguin Photo, Aptenodytes patagonicus



Juvenile 'oakum boy' penguin begs for food, which the adult will regurgitate from its stomach after foraging at sea.  This scene plays out thousands of times each hour amid the vast king penguin colony at Salisbury Plain, where over 100,000 pairs of king penguins nest and rear their chicks.
