Penguin Running Rings Around Itself

January 12, 2014

This wonderful picture of an Adelie penguin on ice who appears to be running rings around itself as one can see via his intricate tracks. The penguin looks like it’s trying to find a way across the various ice floes. But to where we do not know.  The Adelie penguin was pictured as part of US photographer John Weller’s mission to shoot the world’s last remaining pure ocean – the Ross Sea in Antarctica. He started working on the project, named The Last Ocean, with Antarctic Ecologist Dr David Ainley in 2004. Weller’s first short film on the Ross Sea was a finalist in the 2010 Blue Ocean Festival.££-The-Ross-Sea-in-Antarctica-3008504
