Amazing Penguins photos In Antarctica & South Georgia

Wildlife photographer Nick Garbutt from Cumbria travelled to the UK's most remote colony, South Georgia in the sub-Antarctic region, to witness a colossal colony of over a quarter of a million king penguins

The images, taken in the natural harbour of Salisbury Plain, show parent penguins frequently trooping to the shore and back to feed their hungry offspring

The collection shows the tame penguins marching directly towards the camera looking both puzzled and curious, but totally unafraid of the stranger in their midst

The king penguins are also intimate with each other, and greet each other by rubbing their stomachs together and arching their beautiful gold crested necks

One pair put on a spectacular courtship display - almost creating a mirror image of each other

Nick took a three week voyage on a ship called the Vavilov. He sailed from Ushuaia in Argentina's Tierra del Fuego, to the Falklands and from there to the remote island of South Georgia. The voyage also took him to the Yalour Islands and Peterman Island off the Antarctic Peninsula
