Antarctic Penguins

Whales, seals, penguins, and birds, birds, birds comprise the Antarctic wildlife. (You have to go to the Arctic for polar bears.)

Here are a few of the penguin photos that I was privileged to take of three kinds of penguins - Adelie, Chinstrap and Gentoo. They all usually produce two eggs at a time. The Adelie penguins, along with the Emperor Penguins, only live and breed in the Antarctic. The Chinstrap and Gentoo are also found in the sub-Antarctic and sometimes a little further north.
