Description

I spent nearly two hours watching Gentoo penguins gliding at 50 mph through the ice in Antarctica. It is nearly impossible to predict when they will rise for a breath so shooting them in motion is only a fraction of skill and mostly luck. This pair just graced the air where I was looking. They seem so clumsy on land and are torpedo like through the sea. What a joy to watch.
