I Had No Clue What I Was Seeing In This First Picture. Then I Zoomed In And…OMG.

From a distance it is fairly exhausting to know what you are seeing right here, however as you look nearer and nearer you may see simply how superb mom nature will be.

That is odd. Seems to be like some kind of a wave?

Or are these teams of individuals at a music competition?

Oh proper, penguins!

King Penguins to be precise, 1000’s upon hundreds of them.

The brown wave formations are brown child King Penguins, that the adults have herded collectively into teams.

They do that to create a form of a day care facility for his or her chicks.

In order that a lot of the adults can go about their penguin day of principally catching fish.

Whereas choose different penguins take the responsibility of guarding these creches of chicks.

The penguins do that so the chicks can retain their physique heat higher in a tighter and extra controllable group, in addition to permitting the adults to guard them from predators.

“Hey, take a look at my fur coat!”

This is a greater aerial view of those unbelievable wave-like patterns of brown child penguins herded into their creches.

The chicks take between 10 to 13 months to lift, and seeing how they can’t regulate their physique temperature very properly the mother and father must take care of them around the clock for the primary three weeks. After that preliminary interval they put the chicks into one in every of these “day care” creches, returning solely each two or three days with meals for his or her younger.

All these footage had been taken on the shoreline of the southern Atlantic Ocean island of South Georgia, which is a British territory near the Falklands. It is one of many essential breeding colonies for King Penguins.
