[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Antarctic penguins. For penguins very important role play game of voices and moves during changes on the nest in breeding time. Birds recognize their partners very easy (for people it looks like all penguins from one spieces are the same) each other. Antarctic penguins has one of most beautiful play betwen couple, full of snake moves and different voices.
