A small group of King Penguins going back to the ocean to feed. They need to find enough food for themselves and their chicks, who can grow to almost the same size as their parents. Adult King Penguins are relatively safe on land. In the water, however, they face constant danger from predators.
Location: Gold Harbour, South Georgia Island
