Scenes from Antarctica

The Boston Globe has a roundup of lovely photographs of Antarctica from various sources. The penguin in the first picture has a sad story.
After waiting for over two weeks for his mate to return from the sea and relieve him of nest duty, this Adelie penguin's hunger helps him make the decision to abandon his egg in search of fish and krill in the sea.

Other photos depict the Aurora Australis, Antarctic workers, and other wildlife. Link -via the Presurfer
