TIGER in Antarctica, November 23, 2003
An Adelie Penguin by Scott's Base
This morning I let out a cry of "Stop The Van!! A penguin!". I had seen it waddling along the broken up ice alongside the road. We all pile out and get good pictures. The penguin knew we were there, but we didn't get too close and I think didn't bother it. It certainly had the opportunity to walk off and we wouldn't have followed it.
I've got some closeups that I took with the camera on full telephoto on the wildlife web page.
