Never Go First

These macaroni penguins (Eudyptes chrysolophus) are carefully inspecting the water for leopard seals; the first one in is at greatest risk. But watch out for one of your "friends" giving you a little shove from behind to help you get in! You can see their beautiful crests; the one on the right is younger and doesn't have its full crest yet -- they grow in over two or three years. From Cooper Bay, South Georgia Island.

Naiad

This king penguin (Aptenodytes patagonicus) found such a beautiful spot, I was imagining it as the spirit of the waterfall! In its summer, the Antarctic region isn't all snow and ice; this is from Fortuna Bay, South Georgia Island.

Squeaky Baby Seal

Definitely one of the Antarctic region's most adorable inhabitants, this days-old Antarctic fur seal (Arctocephalus gazella) is calling out across Fortuna Bay, South Georgia Island.

These mannequins in Sevilla appear to be facing off against a mob of pedestrians :-)

Beneath the Wall

A busy colony of gentoo peguins (Pygoscelis papua) nests on the rocks beneath a massive wall of ice and snow, on Trinity Island just off the Antarctic Peninsula.

A Little Night Music

Still life with ferry terminal and violin? This is the striking ferry terminal in Sydney, Nova Scotia, on Cape Breton Island, with a huge violin sculpture that I couldn't resist shooting. For some reason I hadn't previously uploaded this one to my website.

Something to Say

One chinstrap penguin (Pygoscelis antarcticus) has heard enough, but the other one still has a reply for a squawking gentoo (Pygoscelis papua), on the volcanic black sand beach at Deception Island.
