Emperor Penguin Couple
 - Aptenodytes forsteri

A pair of emperor penguins that are engaged in a recognition or courtship display. Note that there is no real discernable difference between the pair, penguins are unlike many birds where there is an obvious difference between the sexes, the males and females of all species having essentially identical plumage and markings.
