Gentoo Greetings from Antarctica by 

26 January 2011

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!

    Looks great can’t wait to see more!The chicks have a softness (almost a median effect) about them that is natural but contrasts with the sharpness of the adult , perhaps that is why it looks “weird” on your laptop?

  • Thanks Normf! Everything on the internet is looking weird on my laptop at the moment! ;o)

    I’ve been wondering where you were at this point, Krys, and I’m so happy to hear you’re happily on track in this excursion! You will never bore me to tears with your amazing shots; I can’t wait till you start posting them. This one is a beautiful introduction to the unfolding adventure which lies ahead. Safe and happy sailing to you and Nick! God bless!
