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 (but I’ve never seen one in its natural habitat) written in January thats no longer true. I’ve watched them several times now and I’ve seen the chicks grow into fat teddybear like creatures. So looking forward to my next visit which may be some time.
Whilst living on the Falkland Islands I hope to visit and photograph as many penguin colonies as possible. Well I never expected to see all five species within three months but my goal is now achieved. Next goal is to see some Megallenic, Rockhopper and Gentoo chicks.
