The distribution of the King Penguin, the worlds second largest penguin behind the Emperor Penguin, has been significantly reduced due to the impacts of human settlement. While once colonies were found throughout the southern tip of South America they have largely retreated toward the Antarctic. However, in one nondescript location in Chilean Tierra del Fuego a colony has returned and established itself, successfully raising their young, in what is hopefully a return to their former abundance.

Thanks all! If anyone's wondering, the colony was quite a way away, until these four seemed to go on an expedition together to scout the boundary and waddled within a few meters, made some unusual noises and started doing a dance. I had time to chuck on my 100mm macro and snapped this while I lay on the ground watching the show! It was one of the most incredible things I've seen - they're nearly a meter tall.
