Antarctica

An Australian photographer has captured incredible close-up images of penguins leaping out of the freezing ocean. The colony of penguins was jumping for joy on leaving the water to warm up on the ice after hunting for food. Photographer and marine scientist Frederique Olivier got his camera within a few feet of the flightless birds as they appeared to soar out of the ocean.  Frederique photographed the graceful animals at the Casey research station in Antarctica’s Windmill Islands. After jumping out of the water, the wide-eyed Adelie penguins throw their wings behind them and kick their feet to get a good landing.
