I mean that is just..damn. When animals show compassion like that, it's just so much more emotional. There is no shame in shedding a few after reading that. Just two lonely penguins supporting each other for hours, watching the lights. What an incredible shot by the photographer and to go with that backstory as well? Amazing.
And no I'm not going to make any sort of joke about how that penguin is living my dream shacking up with an older, single penguin. NOW IS NOT THE TIME! This is a beautiful moment in nature and a time of reflection and we are not going to discuss anything gross . But boy do I want to NOT NOW THOUGH. Damn, Jackie. All I know is after seeing that picture, I'm never eating penguin meat again.
