Adelie Penguin, Brown Bluff, Antarctica.

It was always fun to watch penguins enter the water.  Typically, none of them wanted to be the first to jump in – presumably out of fear of being eaten by a lurking Leopard Seal hiding out under the iceberg.  Once one went safely, they would all go.  Although the first one to jump usually wasn’t extra brave, but typically pushed in by the gathering mob behind it.

  2. I love this photo! It is real cool, has movement and a sense of peacefulness in its colour at the same time. 🙂

    I have not commented a lot, but absolutely love all your penguin and Antarctic photos, Ron!
