Two emperor penguins mourn the death of a tiny emperor penguin chick. This is an emotional scene from the excellent BBC series, Penguins–Spy in the Huddle.
Using 50 spy cams for a year, they captured the true character of emperor penguins.
The secret to getting so close and personal?
“The cameras cleverly disguised as lifesize penguins which can silently infiltrate the colonies to record the penguins’ often emotional, and sometimes amusing, behavior. They’re on hand to chart the tough challenges these penguins face from the moment they emerge from the sea to raising their chicks and finally returning to the water,” the website explains.
Here is the website, John Downer Productions, with more information on the whole series, which can be downloaded on iTunes from the site.
