Below heartwarming photos were taken by Marine scientist Frederique Oliver in Antarctica when emperor penguins gathered together to battle temperatures on -20 degrees Celsius as well as winds of up to 40 knots on the ice, to keep their chicks warm. According to the Australian scientist Frederique, “When photographing the penguins you have to be aware at all times that you are in their world, not the other way around. They make you feel humble because they are incredibly adapted to the environment that they are in, whereas it is a challenge for us to survive. But it’s also hard for them and so we have to be careful not to disturb them. You have to be incredibly patient to get the images of the right behavior in the right light. The focus of photography helps you put up with the extreme conditions, until you decide that you can’t freeze anymore!”
