Adelie Penguins are the MOST fun!  They are relatively small  (8-15 lbs) and love to jump in and out of the water.  They are very photogenic because of the white circle that emphasizes their dark brown, almost black, eyes.  When swimming, they "porpoise" very gracefully. These Adelies were photographed at Brown Bluff and Paulet Island, where there are more than 80,000 pairs.
