Among the most appealing and extraordinary of all the world's wildlife, penguins lead a remarkable life swimming, fishing, breeding and surviving in the most inhospitable conditions on earth. Acclaimed photographer Andy Rouse photographs the 'forgotten' penguins; the Gentoos, Chinstraps, Rockhoppers and King Penguins that are in fact the most populous varieties and often the most interesting to observe. Captured here are the antics and fun that are such a large part of a penguin's world; the surfing, sliding and iceberg escapades. Andy Rouse has photographed penguins over a number of years, culminating in this powerful, poignant, amusing and amazing record of penguin life.
