These Adélies were hilarious to watch. Penguins always enter the water with great trepidation, and for a good reason too, predators like the leopard seal could be lurking nearby for a meal.

With this in mind no penguin wants to be the first in the water, they bunch up towards the shore until finally one gives into the pressure and they all dive in at once in a complete panic. Shot in portrait to include the beautiful Antarctic scenery.
