Chinstrap Penguins, Antarctic Peninsula December 31st 2013

These agile birds with delicate markings are my favorite penguins on the Antarctic Peninsula.  I love the ‘chinstrap’ that seems to make them smile all the time!  I took many photographs and wanted to share some that I took on Penguin island.

  2. Didn’t know anything about chinstrap Penguins before. I pinned one of the photos on my bird board on Pinterest. I hope you don’t mind.
