follow the leader

On our last day at the colony the Emperor penguins had moved to a place under a hill. The crew had positioned the 30-meter boundary rope alongside the hill and we, the yellow-coated penguins, were watching the spectacle below from behind the rope on top of the hill. The chicks were very inquisitive and climbed uphill all the time to check us out, after which they were called down by the parent penguins. The bravest of them takes the front position and the others simply follow.
