This young baby Southern Fur Seal was just lying there among a group of penguins. This shows how they all interact in the Antarctic. His mother came back a few minutes later.
Taken on a clear day, one can see the penguins in the background, as well as the beautiful mountains of the Antarctic.
This chinstrap penguin was standing on a pebble beach – just one of the many types of Antarctic penguins. As you can see, its name is appropriate.
These penguins burrow and nest in soft sandy areas. They are native to the Strait of Magellan, hence the name.
These penguins are great climbers and don’t mind jumping up and onto large rocks. They typically nest high up, climbing up steep slopes.
King penguins are very gentle, and will come right up to us.
Adelie Penguins are among the smallest and southernmost penguins found in the Antarctic. This pair had just exchanged the egg, which you can barely see under the penguin on the left side of the picture.
Adelie penguin’s egg is clearly visible underneath this penguin.
It was four o’clock in the morning when I took this picture. The king penguins were all marching from higher up down to the sea. It reminds me of the movie “March of the Penguins”.
This Gentoo penguin was photographed just outside of the British research station.
