[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Adélie Penguin, is a type of penguin common along the entire Antarctic coast and nearby islands. Aside from the storm petrel, they are the most southerly distributed of all seabirds. In 1830, French explorer Dumont d'Urville named them for his wife, Adélie. There are 38 colonies of Adelie penguins, and there are over 5 million Adelies in the Ross Sea Region.
