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.
