Penguin Pair, Antarctica

November 11

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Shots

I took this picture at Port Lockroy during my trip to Antartica in 2010. The two penguins almost touching flippers, looking at each other, and captured against the majestic frozen background, seemed romantically involved.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? Ah, penguin love. In addition to the unavoidable invitation to anthropomorphize this pair, I am taken by the composition. The layers of this frame take it one step beyond the obvious. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
