Much as we love penguins, most of us have only a vague idea of their rich, surprisingly humanlike communal lives. In order to capture these 140 photographs, David Tipling has made numerous trips to Antarctic, risking life and limb to obtain these images of penguins skidding 30 miles on their bellies to the sea, navigating a beach fairly piled with elephant seals, reclining in front of an icebound ship, waddling toward shelter during a blinding blizzard, and strutting past a tourist at close range. Charting these seabirds' intriguing methods of hunting, courting, mating, and establishing families, Tipling also presents an illustrated fact file that surveys 17 surprisingly different species of penguins.
