Going Back to Antarctica

I started looking through my photographs again and could not resist sharing some penguin photographs from my favorite place on the planet.  Antarctica is a wonderful area for taking photos – the scenery is so beautiful and the birds tame.  There are three species of penguin breeding on the Antarctic Peninsula – Gentoo with orange bills, Chinstrap with a delicate black line across cheek and chin  – and Adelie the classic ‘tuxedo penguin’.
