Arctic Dance - Wolthat Mtns, Antartica

Nesting snow Petrels taking flight from a large snow cornice deep in the wolthat mountains of Antarctica. This was photographed during a 54 day unsupported expedition while on-assignment for National Geographic Magazine. These beautiful birds fly nearly 200 miles inland to nest on the high cliffs, commuting every few days to the ocean to bring food back for their partner and chicks. They are truly remarkable and resilient animals.
