I’m gonna be too busy for the next week or so to reliably produce any art, so… PENGUINS!
I saw four species of penguins on my research trip in the Antarctic. The Magellanic penguin was the first we encountered before we even set sail, there is a whole colony at Gypsy Cove, about half an hour’s walk out of Stanley Harbour in the Falklands. Chinstrap penguins were the most common at sea, we often saw them porpoising like dolphins beside our ship. On South Georgia, we got up close and personal with some king penguins. The individuals in the photograph are juveniles going through their first moult into adult plumage. Finally, we saw a handful of gentoos at sea, and this lone bird at South Georgia (still don’t know if that white patch is because of moulting, or a close call with a leopard seal or something). We also visited a big colony back in the Falklands, but was unable to get close up shots like the one here.
If people are interested in more photos from my many and varied research expeditions, I might make a blog for it.
