Image of the day

The British Antarctic Survey Dash 7 aircraft lands at the Sky Blu runway.
In the background is a Piston Bully vehicle & trailer on which are white travel boxes full of ice cores that are being taken north to Rothera Research Station on the first leg of their journey to analytical Labs in Europe. Such Ice cores are critical to our understanding of past climate and predictions of future change.

Head-on close up of a macaroni penguin (Eudyptes chrysolophus) on South Georgia. The yellow head plumes meet over the beak, unlike the similar Rockhopper penguin.
