Submitter nancylpt shot this photo of Adelie penguins while kayaking in Marguerite Bay, Antarctica.

Adelie penguins are the species featured in the children's book "Mr. Popper's Penguins." They were named for the wife of Jules Dumont d'Urville, the French explorer who made his name studying Antarctica, along with Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific, in the 19th century.
