Engaged in courtship display, a pair of King Penguin, Aptenodytes patagonicus, greet each other at the rookery in Tierra del Fuego, Chile, the only breeding colony for the species in South American mainland. Second in size only to its close relative the Emperor, King is also the most colourful of penguins, adding to the palette in sub-antarctic regions of the Southern Hemisphere where it is present.

 

Absortos en el ritual de cortejo, una pareja de Pingüino Rey, Aptenodytes patagonicus, se saluda en la colonia de Tierra del Fuego, Chile, la única colonia reproductiva conocida para Sudamérica continental. Sobrepasado en tamaño sólo por su pariente cercano el Emperador, el Rey es además el más colorido de los pingüinos, enriqueciendo la paleta de las regiones subantárticas del Hemisferio Sur donde está presente.
