Photographer's Note

King penguins rookery, in Possession island (Crozet islands, French Antarctic and Subantarctic territories).

Of course this is an animal picture, but mainly this is to me a very special travel (a scientific campaign), while war in Kuweit.

Penguins gather to defend themselves from predators: an isolated individual has absolutely no chance against some great antarctic skuas...

This photo seems to be popular! Better definition (TIFF) available on request, even if it is only an analogic, scanned photo :-)

Note to TE: a lot of territories are not included in your menus
