The lonely penguin

In the last month we've spoken many times about the poles and their critical envitomental situation due to the ice melting caused by the global warming.
This wonderful picture by John B Weller is a perfect chance to do it once again.

Not far from its Franklin Island colony, this lone Adelie punctuates the looping scrawl of penguin tracks across plates of Ross Sea pack ice. Some 2.7 million of the birds populate the Ross Sea region.
The Antarctic Summer has reduced the ice pack in a obstacle course like never before.

This image by John B Weller (©2008 National Geographic), and others can be seen in this month's issue of National Geographic Magazine, available on news stands now.

    They way these feathered friends and fantastic fungi appear on the paper, it is as though they were waiting for your hand to reveal them. See how they all have their attention on you, Geninne?
