Summary

Against the spectacular background of Antarctica, Iwago has perfectly captured the natural charm of penguins in this new collection. Among the most popular of birds, penguins are intriguing, comical, extraordinarily friendly creatures and Iwago documents these appealing qualities as only a nature photographer of his stature can. Page after page of full-color photographs showing penguins preening, mating, diving, swimming under water, and performing acrobatic feats are sure to delight.
