Gentoo penguin surfers

Surfers use boards to catch the waves and ride monster swells but Gentoo penguins (Pygoscelis papua) only need their happy webbed feet to surf the waves like Adrian Buchan or Adriano de Souza. British photographer Andy Rouse traveled to the Falkland Islands and captured Gentoo penguins surfing to shore and then going out again to catch more waves. Rouse's photographs are being featured in a the BBC's new seven-part natural history series 'Frozen Planet' being shown this autumn and an accompanying book.
