Hi guys! I didn’t think this would be possible but ain’t technology wonderful!? ;o)
Gentoo Penguin (pygoscelis papua) and two chicks, snapped yesterday at the Gabriel Gonzalez Videla Chilean Antarctic Base on the Antarctic Peninsula.
As I post this we are currently sailing back to Argentina through the notorious Drake Strait, having visited the Falklands, South Georgia, South Orkneys, South Shetlands, Elephant Island, Deception Island and the too-beautiful-for-words Lemaire Channel in the Antarctic Peninsula. The wildlife has been amazing so be prepared to be bored to tears of pictures of penguins, seals and albatross when I get home!
