Penguin "chicks", 5 1/2 months old, on Dec. 30, 1981, on pack ice
drifting out to sea, near the French Dumont-d'Urville research station on
Adélie coast of Antarctica. We had to walk (carefully!) on thin pack
ice to photograph these. They were on their own at this point, and had to
learn to dive and feed at sea. Sadly these particular chicks may not have
survived, as the very reason we saw them above water is that they were some
of the youngest chicks, and may have been less well fed.
