Late Risers

Species: Magellanic Penguin | Location: Saunders Island, Falkland Islands

We had landed at Saunders Island in the Falklands. One of my goals for the landing was to get a good shot of Magellanic penguins. When we landed, there really weren't any in sight. I wandered around and took pictures of other wildlife. Finally I saw a few appearing in the distance. I moved as close as I could without disturbing them and was able to get a picture. They had been inside their burrows when we arrived and were just getting up and out in mid-morning.

About The Photographer

Cropped marian pantanaal

I'm a world traveler who has been traveling the globe for the past 15 years, visiting places that are being most impacted by global warming. My initial photography interest was in macros of plants and flowers, but once I obtained a longer lens, I became an avid wildlife photographer. I enjoy visiting off-the-beaten-path places and capturing images of the flora and fauna. I also enjoy sharing these images and experiences with others through my web site and personal presentations.
