South Georgia, Southern Ocean
A truely comical moment as this Gentoo Penguin, returning from sea, found its way back to its own colony completely blocked by hundreds of Elephant Seals, all tightly packed together. The Gentoo tried repeatedly to find its way through the blubbery maze but each time was thwarted. Eventually it took the only course of action available by climbing up and walking on the backs of the seals. There was a fantastic image to be had of this but one which I missed as I was doubled up with laughter.
