Gentoo penguins are adorable. especially the little grey and white fluffy chicks. These photos were taken at Paulet Island and at Brown Bluff , both located at the tip of the Antarctic peninsula. They are relatively small, 10 - 18 pounds, and porpoise when they are swimming. They have a white marking above their very dark brown eyes. They build a nest of rocks onto which the mother lays her eggs and lies atop them to keep them warm.
Lots of photos of comical gentoo penguins, taken at Paulet Island and Brown Bluff, at the tip of the Antarctic peninsula.
