A Waddle of Penguins Getting Ready to go for a Swim - Antarctica by JD Andrews

One thing you are sure to encounter in Antarctica is penguins. The most common on my trip was the Gentoo, easily identified by the white patch around and behind the eye. I literally have thousands of photos of these cute little guys.

One surprising thing you'll never forget after being around a lot of penguins is the smell. It seems to soak into your clothes and it took weeks after my trip to Antarctica to 'air them out' but it did always bring back wonderful memories.
