Will this finally be the year that I photograph my slides from 18.5 years ago, when I worked in the Antarctic?

This is a juvenile Magellanic penguin, at Stanley, on the Falkland Islands.

I'm intending to use my macro lens to photograph each slide, although it's tricky getting everything set up (to keep everything aligned, and I probably need a better light source than a white screen on my mobile phone).... and then there's 18.5 years of dust and fluff to clone off each slide!

If anyone has any tips for the set-up, I'd love to hear. I've been Googling, but I can't see anything helpful, so far. Ideally, what would be nice, would be some contraption that would screw onto the end of my macro lens, and hold the slide at the other end, so that the slide is properly aligned with the end of the lens, and the correct distance away, but I can't seem to find such a thing.

Gentoo Penguin at Edinburgh Zoo :-)

a natural signpost in the Zoo, made by cute Penguins :)

The Calgary Zoo's king penguins are allowed to venture out of their enclosure for a 15- minute stroll . This program ( 1st of its kind in Canada) is popular with the zoo visitors. So far, the birds seem to love the change in their routine too.


King Penguins have the perfect disposition for a public walk:They follow directions, stick together, and are content to stroll at a leisurely pace.

Formerly known as the "Jackass Penguin" because when they vocalize they sound like donkeys. It was really cool to see these penguins on the beach, there were several active nests and lots of fun behaviors to watch!


The grainy portions in the lower half of the image are from sand blowing in the wind. It was an extremely windy day but still lots of photographic opportunities!

A pair of Erect Crested penguins at St. Louis Zoo. My flash gave them evil looking eyes. They looked cool so I didn't try to fix them.


I went back to the St Louis Zoo shots to see if I could salvage some of the discarded shots. I thought I'd blown all the shots from inside the penguin exhibit but there were a few I was able to save.

L & I made this penguin from the wool pets book.

he did the body, wings and head, I did the detail parts.

I should have let him do the details, but I got kind of obsessive....

now we are both sort of obsessed. this is so fun and addicting.

he got a big multi-color pack of wool roving for christmas too....

A Humboldt penguin taken at Twycross Zoo


Humboldt penguins have a white front with a brown/black head and back. They have a white border surrounding the dark face feathers.


Humboldt penguins are threatened by poaching, over-fishing of their food species, collection of guano and pollution which increases the risk of disease and are therefore classed as Vulnerable. The guano that covers the nest sites is a good fertiliser, but collection disturbs breeding for the following years. These penguins are protected in Chile and guano collection is regulated.

Dellingsdawn sent me this magnificent Antarctica card. It is so beautiful!!!!! One of my all time favourites :)

The king penguin in the front is a female. Her suitor is behind her and his rival at the back. The rival kept attacking the suitor with his beak. Volunteer Point, East Falkland.

Penguin parents are incredibly attentive to their young. They often stand just behind them for hours and hours on end—feeding, protecting, and just waiting for the chicks to grow up.

It's Christmas day and it's snowing. I open the door to the backyard and I see

this little fellow with happy feet standing and looking at me.

Then he turns to me and says: " I can see you guys got lots of snow here, but

down south where I'm from, we are melting. It's getting warmer and warmer and

we are losing it, also heard Polar Bears up north are losing their home too, would

you please save our planet. " !
