Proprietor’s wildlife photos and videos

December 14, 2019 • 7:45 am

I have to put up more of my penguin videos because penguins (note yesterday’s language post). We’ll see videos and photos of three species today. Try to see the videos on full screen.

Here are some gentoo penguins (Pygoscelis papua) porpoising in the water and trying, largely unsuccessfully, to mount a small iceberg. Cuverville Island off Antarctica, November 20, 2019

A stately King penguin (Aptenodytes patagonicus) walks with great dignity at Bluff Cove, East Falkland, November 24, 2019.

A Chinstrap penguin (Pygoscelis antarcticus) scuttles on its belly. Orne Harbor, Antarctica, November 16, 2019.



Nobody ever claimed that penguins are great walkers. This chinstrap, also at Orne Harbor, has some trouble getting about:

  1. Thank you very much! Will you be making your Antarctic shipboard lectures available in some form Jerry? It would be a sin if all that prep work & the info itself didn’t result in a resource for future generations.

          1. I think we can work with that. We’ll recreate the moment. We’ll film you giving the lectures again in front of a green screen and we’ll insert suitable Antarctic scenes in the background. 😎

  2. Loved the belly perambulation. Too cute. Penguins make me laugh and make me happy. Thanks for today’s highlight.
