With three ships currently exploring the Antarctic, the stars of this week's photos from the field were obvious: penguins! Whether building nests, diving, or ambling over to inspect visitors, Antarctica's most iconic creatures didn't disappoint. Curious penguins also checked out snorkelers in the Galápagos Islands—the only place in the Northern Hemisphere where penguins can be found in the wild.
