Punta Tombo must be a predator free place for these penguins to enjoy such nesting without borders! This is a sight to behold and one could just imagine being there to watch this penguin behavior. Wonderful panoramic shot!
That is another whole world! Almost alien. Penguins are such funny-looking creatures. But I thought they were essentially sea birds ...
They are so cute and I love the way they walk. Diane
They are wonderful to see. What an experience!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Fantastic to see all those birds scattered everywhere.
They are fabulous JM! It's one of my (many)dreams, to see them in wild:)
I wonder if I will ever get to see a wild Penguin in my lifetime. I am aware I will have to make some travel plans because they won't come to me. A beautiful image.
Looks like a harsh place to nest.
THis is awesome!!
Beautiful picture! Have you ever been to Ushuaia? I love that place and visited once. Do you have any pictures of End of the world and beginning of everything?Cruise Picture
Shows how little I know about penguins, but I was rather stunned to see them in such an arid looking place. I'm so used to seeing them photographed in snow and ice. The certainly do look to be having a good time just strolling around doing their thing. You get the best animal shots, they so often seem so "human" for lack of a better word.
JM, I am at a total loss for words. It is increasingly mind boggeling to follow your photographic wanderings. A thousand zombie penguins roam the wastelands of Patagonia?! That is wild even by your standards.I remain your humble servant!
they are so cute...and strange without snow :)
Interesting how free they are. It almost looks like it is a desert.
That is a strange scene. Wonderful photograph!
The domain of penguins! Out of this world! How did they let you in to take a photo?
@Hilke: Actually, the (always controlled) presence of humans in the reserve prevent the penguins from being attacked by predators. And I think they know it! :-)))
JM, This is one of those take-my-breath-away photos. Lucky,lucky you for being able to see them in person. Thank-you for sharing your birding adventures!
How great to see -- so interesting to see penguins in that environment!
Wow!! excellent!!At the long glance they look like people just wandering around. You got a shot that not many people see. MB
