Report: Feed Me!

Adult penguins are attentive and tolerant parents. Sometimes, though, the young -- whose snapping at their beaks triggers a reflexive regurgitation -- can be just a little too persistent and demanding for feeding. At Paradise Harbor, Antarctica, I captured this video sequence which follows the process from adorable start to acrimonious finish. An homage to the challenges of parenthood from The Voyage of Macgellan!
