Now from what it said in the book, it said that chinstrap penguins are fearless birds and are known to drive humans away by raising their beaks and flapping their wings. I'm surprised that penguin didn' do that.

penguins in antarctica aren't used to humans and have no idea what they are. they're super curious and friendly. I have friends who work tours and hang out with penguins all the time.

it could be chinstraps in a different area.

That's cool. Still, you should consider what I told you from the book. Books never lie.

awesome photograph ! and very cute :D that is the perfect pose and your focus is spot on . the angle of the horizon enhances the art of it . i wonder what that penguin was thinking about you taking a photo :giggle: how did you protect your camera and lenses in those conditions ? some type of thermal case ?

Thanks! all we did was put our cameras into a drybag and stick them in a backpack in the parts when we were in the water. Once we were on shore we'd pull them out. Snow melted onto it but it was okay. I just didn't shoot as long as I normally would.

oh so the temperature didn't bother the technical stuff inside or the memory cards at all . that's interesting . i would've thought they would have problems being so cold . really cool that it wasn't an issue for you :D
