“I was with professional wildlife photographer Paul Goldstein,” explains photographer and wildlife and conservation lecturer Charles Kinsey. “We were searching for photographic subjects at Fortuna Bay in south Georgia. Suddenly, Paul spotted a couple of king penguins who were preening their backs simultaneously—right on the beach close to where we were standing. He immediately pointed at them and said sharply to me, ‘Charles, take that now!’ I had the chance for one shot only before one of the penguins raised its head.”
