Penguins, penguins, penguins. They are everywhere in Antarctica and it doesn’t take long to become immune to their cute and almost human ways. But what is never lost is the magic of standing in the midst of a massive penguin colony, listening to the shrill cries and observing heart-warming scenes of parental love. One of my favorite penguin encounters was on Orne Island, home to thousands of chinstrap penguins. Named for their unusual coloring, chinstraps are amongst the most recognizable penguins species.
