Safe Harbor -
The Sarah W. Verwork resting in a harbor on Cuverville Island, Antarctica.  This 54 foot yacht regularly crosses Drake Passage between the tip of South America and Antarctica and sails to South Georgia Island as well as the Falklands.  These expeditions are probably for the more hearty adventurers.     www.davidrecht.net

Fluke Watch -
Chasing humpback whale flukes on a snowy day in Bancroft Bay, Antarctica.  Although summer, the black and white version makes this seem a cold and ominous scene.     www.davidrecht.net

Hi Guys! -
This Chinstrap penguin seems to be our welcoming party at Hydrudga Rocks, Antarctica. Seems to have a smile on his face and is glad to see us. None of the penguins in Antarctica exhibited fear of us. Mostly they went about their business and, if necessary, just waited for us to be clear of their path. www.davidrecht.net

Egg Warmer -
This chinstrap penguin is taking a short break from the 5-10 day stretch spent warming the egg. It takes about 5 weeks for a chinstrap penguin egg to hatch.  Half Moon Island, Antarctica    www.davidrecht.net

Rockin' It -
This chinstrap penguin is carrying another rock up to the nest.  They tend to do this all day long especially because other penguins are stealing from its nest when they are stealing from others' nests.  I bet some of these rocks have been carried dozens of times.  A bit comical to watch them work so earnestly at being thieves.     www.davidrecht.net
