 You Cold? - What Do These Penguins ? Do In -30 Below and more? -

When it gets very cold, emperor penguins huddle together in large groups to keep each other warm. It’s the only way they can survive the brutal conditions they face in the course of their incredible reproduction cycle on the sea ice off Antarctica. 

During mid-winter blizzards, when males are incubating eggs on their feet with only their brood flaps to cover the future chicks, temperatures can drop to -70 degrees. 

When I made this image it was not quite that bad, only -30 degrees, but I was standing on top of a platform perched at the edge of a colony and I had to stay still to avoid spooking the birds. 

It was an ordeal, and it took a while to get warm again, but the images were worth it. At @FransLanting for more stories from the amazing world of emperor penguins.

Yes,  Jehovah  has  the  BEST  idea's  bec. HE  was  creating  all  things !   An  elder  gave  us  a  similar  example  to  the  penguins  -  'WE  and  the  Congregation'...  always  try  being  in  the  middle  of  ALL :x   then  we're  more  safer  and  warm  with  love  etc. -  More  outside  we're  feeling  the  cold  of  the  bad  system...   NOT  nice  and  getting  in  danger :(

Look  here,  how  the  clever  penguins  that  doing :)

 

Emperor Penguins Huddle for Warmth :x

To survive frigid temperatures, emperor penguins all converge on the same central point and begin to form a huddle. As those on the outside take the brunt of the cold, those on the inside take tiny steps that move the huddle in waves. The pack continues to shift and rotate from the center, so no one is left permanently in the cold.
