This will be a very simple post — just a ton of photos of cute penguins from my trip to Antarctica 🙂 Enjoy!
Love the diversity of poses in this shot – from just hanging in the middle through trying to a nap on the left to I dropped something on the right 🙂
Papa penguin on guard.
Easily my favorite image 😀
Descending to a giant rookery on Deception island. Epic.
It’s funny how some of them sleep with their heads sorta hidden.
Thug vs. Mr. Flexible
This fella has been belly sliding in the mud 😉
Synchronized poop victory dance? 🙂
Snow Patrol over here (see what I did there? 😉 ) came to investigate our ski after we arrived at one of the rookeries. So funny!
Not sure what this 3-way argument was about. But these guys are loud.
It’s hard to show you with a photo how cute this pebble carrying is 🙂 Basically this guy went around taking pebbles either from the shore or directly from other penguin nests and proceeded to pile them on his own, presumably to impress his lady. Smart man 😉
Another shot of the Deception rookery. Thousands upon thousands of penguins, incredible. And quite smelly actually.
Seeing these guys live is 10x more fun 🙂
I know what you’re thinking, he needs some exercise. Back off guys, he is in shape! 🙂
I do have more stories from Antarctica that I hope I get to in the coming weeks… stay tuned.
