A large colony of Gentoo Penguins lives around the former British military post - now a visitor center - at Port Lockroy. Many of the nests had two chicks, sometimes three. I just had to position myself at their level and have patience to wait for the decisive moment.
The image was initially processed in Adobe Lightroom for standard tonal adjustments, and then further adjusted for color, contrast, and brightness using Nik and Topaz software in Adobe Photoshop. The upload file was created with Adobe Lightroom with mild output sharpening.
