– Beagle Channel, 2014 –
When our catamaran arrived at the shores of Isla Martillo to show us the penguin colony on the rocky little island, most of the penguins raised their heads from whatever they were doing and gave us curious looks. Some backed away for a few minutes, but after our boat had stopped at a safe distance, most of the island’s population seemed to flock over to us to take a proper look.
One penguin was so funny. He was eagerly walking towards us, then he just suddenly plumped down on the ground and decided that was enough.
We didn’t go ashore or touch the penguins; I assure you that no penguins were harmed in this photo shoot!
