Species: Chinstrap Penguin | Location: Half Moon Island, Antarctica

We landed on Half Moon Island in Antarctica about 4 pm. The light was wonderful! Many people set off on a hike, but I just sat with the penguins and waited for some photo opportunities. I noticed that when coming out of the water, many penguins paused at the top of the gravel and flapped. I waited for one to do so and took the shot.

About The Photographer

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.
