Saturday April 18, 2020 P is for Penguin!

2020 A to Z Challenge!
P is for Penguin!
Photos were taken by me in 2008 while
touring Punta Arenas.




They just marched along the path.


And gathered together at the edge of the sea.



Penguins are a group of aquatic flightless birds. They live almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, with only one species, the Galápagos penguin, found north of the equator. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have counter shaded dark and white plumage and flippers for swimming.

  5. I have seen penguins in zoos, but have never traveled anywhere they naturally live. When my kids were little, and home schooled, we did a unit on penguins. They were amazed some were taller than they were!

  8. IIRC, father's keep the eggs and the babies warm, which makes me love penguins. When I see them sliding on ice on their bellies I know they are gentle creatures.
