So I actually wrote the vast majority of this post after my first close encounter with Penguins in Antarctica, over a week ago. But data was prohibitively expensive there, so today I finally get to post it! For your entertainment 🙂
These penguins have it figured out and are living the high life – they’re hanging out on their floating glacier island which just so happens to have its own swimming pool. #ThatAntarcticLife
They call me “Sir Penguin”. *mic drop*
Come out to Antarctica, we’ll have a party!
Dude, where’s my car?! I know I left it here somewhere!!
HI! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi! Hi!
I had nothing to do with that flag going down… just keep walking, just keep walking…
Nomnomnom – I’ve heard your kind will pay top dollar for glacier water. That’s just how we roll around here.
Stop cheesing for the tourists! OMG! I don’t know you. I can’t get caught hanging out with this ANIMAL.
Ugh, fine, whatever you want. Geez.
Penguin on the right: “Do you SEE what I’m dealing with? Please take me with you!” “Wait – you eat birds? Ugh.”
We call this the penguin wiggle – do these feathers make my tail look big?
Yes, um, hi, I see that you’ve sat down – I have some business to take care of, but how about a “welcome to the neighborhood” coffee later?
WHAT?! It’s like you’ve never seen a penguin walking around on a beach before. Geez, get that camera out of my face!
Penguin on the right to the penguin in front on the left “ugh, such a poser!”
Penguin on the right: Dude, these guys are HUGE! And they’re dressed so informally! What should we do???
Dude, I am telling you, go THAT way!!!
One small step for this penguin, one giant leap for penguin kind!
This is about as close to flying as I get… um… the wings are sorta Louis Bouton-like. You don’t actually expect to WALK in those shoes, do you? EXACTLY.
Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to work we go.
And you thought puppies and kittens were cute! Blue Steel & the little ones here just broke the cute-o-meter.
All together now: Awwwwwwwwwww
I make this look good. Yeah I do. Who’s your penguin?
Just TRY and capture our base!
Flag down means I won, right?
I knew it! Victory is mine!!!
Hey guys, we won!
Nothing to see here. No animal carcasses with potential backstories which need explaining. Nope. Move along now.
Wait, I thought this was how the Charlie’s Angels pose went?!
Guess who’s back, back again? Penguins back, tell a friend.
Think you could get me an agent?!?!?
