Majestic emperors

Emperor penguins in Antarctica create a picture perfect line for the camera.
Emperor penguins are the largest of all penguins, with some measuring up to 42 inches (115 centimeters) tall and weighing up to 84 pounds (38 kilograms). These penguins can dive to depths of 1,800 feet (550 meters) on a single breath of air — sometimes holding their breath for up to 20 minutes.
