The lonesome penguins

Gentoo Penguins

For most people one of the main reasons to come to Antarctica is to see penguins. Penguins are relatively big birds, cute, curious and easy to spot. When you’re at the colony and are patient, they might come and check you out.

But sometimes you see some penguins out in the big white world. They look lost, but actually, this is where they are at home. Looking for their way to the colony or to the feeding grounds these two seemed lost in the white, making a nice graphical image for me.
