Those down-turned beaks can be so expressive,
by watching a penguin colony or just a small group of individuals, you
can imagine a whole host of dramas and interactions that are going on.
The reality is more likely that it's all in your own head.
I sometimes wonder from pictures like this whether
some emperor penguins have eyes at all?
