Lesser Flamingos at Dawn
I photographed these flamingos during a misty sunrise at Lake Nakuru, when the birds come close to shore around the freshwater inlets. This shot was selected by Apple to be among its OS X wallpapers.
Adélie penguins posturing and posing in the middle of their bonding ritual. I took this picture at Cape Adare, Antarctica. A tight crop helped to focus on their expressions as they appeared to glance at the camera.
Th e Auk Colony
The colossal auk colony at Alkefjellet on the east coast of Spitzbergen, breeding site to over a million guillemots. I shot this from an expedition vessel.
