Penguin Photographs by Lee Rentz

"Frigid and glacial, with powerful blasts of icy wind, Antarctica is no place for warm, cuddly creatures. Or so it would seem.

Yet Antarctica is home to vast penguin colonies - the wonderfully humanoid birds that define "warm and cuddly." While journeying to Antarctica, I have been privileged to photograph eight species of penguins, seven of which are portrayed here.

I consider my Antarctica travels a high point of my life. As you view my pictures and read my stories, I hope that you can share the sense of wonder I feel for these creatures and the wondrous place they call home."
