Group of adelie penguins begin to dive into the sea together to go fishing. They typically gather in large groups on the shore, then all jump in at the same time to reduce their chances of being eaten by an ocean predator.
The first of a group of adelie penguins dives into the ocean, while the others look on.
Adelie penguin and newborn chicks. There are actually two of them there, the one on the right has its head tucked in, the one on the left has its body tucked in. These chicks are only a day or so old.
Adelie penguin swimming off Cape Bird, porpoising in and out of the water like a dolphin.
Dead Weddel Seal. The seal has wandered inland and died. The cold has freeze-dried it, and the winds have stripped away some of the flesh exposing the skull.

Inscription on the wall "Losses to date" from 1916 under one of the bunks at the Cape Evans historic hut. These were Shackelton's "Forgotten Men" who were waiting for him to cross Antarctica, not knowing his ship had been crushed in the ice on the other side of the continent, hence the last name being an abbreviated Shackelton with a question mark after it.
