Species: King Penguin | Location: South Georgia Island, Antarctic Region
King penguins gather at a river on South Georgia Island. Notice the hundreds of "teenage" penguins who are aptly called "woolies" because of the brown furry coat they're born with. They will shed it after about one year as they transition into the black and white feathers you see on the adult penguins. There's also a seal somewhere in this photo, can you spot it?
