Two Emperor Penguins

Two emperor penguins meet on the Antarctic ice in what looks like a kiss. Emperor penguin courtship involves trumpeting and bonding of pairs. They breed on sea-ice and most eggs are laid in May and June after which the male takes responsibility for the entire 62-66 days of incubation while the female is at sea finding food.
