after a wild earth trip to the sub antarctic islands we returned via the snares where these shots were taken from an inflatable of penguins waiting out the low tide.We didn,t land as the shore line is too rough
Sheltering in the shade of driftwood on the beach. Second photo is of penguin tracks in sand.
About to dive into the water to cross a deep pool. Looks like this one has a chafed flipper.
One of several penguins coming in for the evening, walking with loud wet plap-plap-plap footsteps.
We parked at Boulders Beach and walked along the boardwalk. To the right-hand side, there were quite a few penguins in the bushes along the way, many in some stage of moulting.
Penguins (order Sphenisciformes, family Spheniscidae) are a group of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, especially in Antarctica. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have evolved into flippers. Most penguins feed on krill, fish, squid and other forms of sealife caught while swimming underwater. They spend about half of their lives on land and half in the oceans.
