Happy World Penguin Day!
April 25th is known as World Penguin Day, so for this #wildlifewednesday image I’ve chosen one of my favourite penguin pictures from my travels to Antarctica.
This little guy was photographed near the shore at Deception Island, a popular stop for visitors to the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula. I found the Gentoo Penguins to be the most ‘friendly’ of the penguins in Antarctica. Chinstrap Penguins had a strangely evil look to them and I thought that Adelie Penguins had some sort of superiority complex about them.
Perhaps that sounds crazy, but if you spent much time with penguins you’d probably go slightly crazy too…!
