Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

In Antarctica, everyone looks up-side down
Easy-Reader narrates this full-length doco about the greater part of the year for the emperor penguin. (Aptenodytes forsteri)

And it's stunning. I found myself wishing that I had seen this at the cinema, where the incredible photography must have really frozen its audiences.

The incredible feats of endurance that the penguins go through each year for their offspring makes you slightly wonder what on Earth the point of the other three months of their year is. We see great crowds of them huddling together in raging storms, practically standing still for months without anything to eat. (no wonder they waddle) And all so that a cute little critter can one day hatch-out and spend its entire life enduring the same thing.

You have to wonder if melting the ice caps might actually make life easier for them...
