Sky pointing King Penguin at St. Andrews Bay Rookery

    Newer Older

    As you can see, I'm still mining the photos from my Antarctica trip earlier this year. This is one from S. Georgia Island that I hadn't yet posted. There are about 100,000 King Penguin pairs with their chicks in this nesting colony, the second largest penguin colony in the world.

      Holey moley, way to go showcasing this very *cool* convention with a custom background to dignify the penguins for the year(s) ahead. It's always a pleasure to see this as I scroll down the home page at *ABW* Gallery among the featured photographs.

      All the best to you, Phil, in the New Year with approximately 31 million seconds remaining in 2011 and god only knows how many clicks of the shutter all around the world by land and sea and satellite ... and even in Antarctica.

      Thanks, all, for the comments. It was quite an experience to be there to take this shot.

      No matter where they show up, whatever time of day or night, your penguins always draw a crowd ... and deservedly so.
