Jeff Thill of Orlando, Florida, shot this photo in January 2014 of thousands of King Penguins on Salisbury Plain on South Georgia Island, where 100,000 pairs of penguins breed. Mixed among the handsome adults are brown chicks.
Thill and his son visited South Georgia, the Falkland Islands, and Antarctica. He used a Nikon D90 and a 70-200mm lens.
