Antarctica - A Quiet Obsession - hawkeyepics

If you ask people what they associate with Antarctica, the usual answer is “Penguins and Ice!” On this day at Brown Bluff in the Weddell Sea, we cruised in a rubber boat to look at this interestingly blue stranded iceberg, and a solitary Adelie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) popped up from inside. He (or she) seemed quite interested in us, and watched us go by, but perhaps only wanted to check our visitors’ permit!
