Penguins and Nature

The friendliest most engaging animal on the planet? Monogamous, monochrome, magnificent; they’ve inspired writers, artists, photographers and David Attenborough for years.The King penguin featured in animation and documentaries. Whilst living in the Falkland Islands I was lucky enough to chicks grow into fat teddybear like creatures.

The islands are home to five species of penguin; Rockhopper, Megallenic, King, Gentoo and Macaroni.  I hoped, but never expected to see all five species during my stay but I managed to see all five several times including seeing chicks being born and growing. They really are quite magical.
