Emperor Feet Emperor Penguin Aptenodytes forsteri. Gould Bay, Weddell Sea, Antarctica. Sue Flood, United Kingdom. Category: Attention to Detail. COMMENDED. Photographer’s Story: ‘In November 2016 I had the privilege of visiting the Emperor Penguin colony at Gould Bay in Antarctica’s Weddell Sea. The birds were awe-inspiring and I was particularly struck by their feet: they are strong and sturdy, with large, gripping claws to help propel them across the ice. Blood vessels are arranged so there is a counter-current heat exchange between warm and cold blood, ensuring that their feet don’t freeze.’ Canon EOS 5DS with Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM lens and 2x converter. 600mm focal length; 1/320 second; f/16; ISO 400.
