Yes, that is exactly what you think you’re seeing.
I mean, how freakin’ cool is that?
According to the Telegraph, BBC program host Terry Jones explained,
We’d been watching the penguins and filming them for days, without a hint of what was to come …. But then the weather took a turn for the worse. It was quite amazing. Rather than getting together in a huddle to protect themselves from the cold, they did something quite unexpected, that no other penguins can do.
Apparently a BBC crew witnessed the flight of the Adélie penguins from King George Island—750 miles south of the Falklands—while filming for an upcoming series called Miracles of Evolution.
