penguins in antarctica and sOuth geOrgia

Wildlife photographer Nick Garbutt from Cumbria travelled to the UK’s most remote colony, South Georgia in the sub-Antarctic region, to witness a colossal colony of over a quarter of a million king penguins

The images, taken in the natural harbour of Salisbury Plain, show parent penguins frequently trooping to the shore and back to feed their hungry offspring

The collection shows the tame penguins marching directly towards the camera looking both puzzled and curious, but totally unafraid of the stranger in their midst

The king penguins are also intimate with each other, and greet each other by rubbing their stomachs together and arching their beautiful gold crested necks

One pair put on a spectacular courtship display – almost creating a mirror image of each other

Nick took a three week voyage on a ship called the Vavilov. He sailed from Ushuaia in Argentina’s Tierra del Fuego, to the Falklands and from there to the remote island of South Georgia. The voyage also took him to the Yalour Islands and Peterman Island off the Antarctic Peninsula

Gorillas In The Mist


These wild haired primates prove that being a real life gorilla in the mist can wreak havoc with your hairdo.

Looking in desperate need of some frizz-ease, the grizzled gorillas have the local weather to thank for their curly look.

Hair-raising: This youngster isn’t quite sure whether the permed look suits him

Each morning the damp forested slopes of the volcanic Virunga Mountains, along the northern border of Rwanda in the East Africa, are blanketed in mist.
This event, and the gorillas who call the slopes home, became famous thanks to gorilla expert Dian Fossey’s book and the subsequent film ‘Gorillas in the Mist’.

When the haze eventually burns off it leaves everything coated in a fine layer of water – resulting in the gorillas’ curly coiffures.

Bad hair day: The early moning mist leaves the gorillas looking a bit fluffed up

Curly coated: But perhaps rolling around a bit will help to straighten things out


But being transformed into permed primates doesn’t crimp their style and the gorillas soon dry off as the morning progresses.

However, before that could happen these particular gorillas were captured in all their frizzed-up glory by professional wildlife photographer Andy Rouse.

Wheelchair user taken on wild 50-mph ride

A wheelchair user has been taken for a high-speed ride along a US highway after his handlebars became tangled up in the front grille of a lorry. The back of Ben Carpenter’s wheelchair was scooped up as he passed in front of a lorry leaving a petrol station. The driver was completely unaware that he had a new passenger, kept in his wheelchair by a seatbelt. Passing motorists told police, who found the man unhurt – but still attached to the front of the truck.

Police in the town of Paw Paw, Michigan, said Mr Carpenter had told them "it was quite a ride", but complained only that he had spilled his soda. The lorry reached speeds of 50mph (80km/h) as it drove down the Red Arrow Highway. After several miles the driver pulled over at the depot of a trucking company where police then told him about the man on his front end.

He refused to believe there was a man in a wheelchair stuck to the front of his truck until he saw it for himself, police said. "It’s fast, I know that," Ben Carpenter told local Wood TV. "I was probably thinking that he [the driver] is going to keep going, not stop anywhere, go 50-60 miles somewhere". "I mean I would have been dead way before that," he added."
