Gentoo Penguins (Pygoscelis papua) are one of the three species of “brushtail” penguin, (the others being the Adelie and the Chinstrap) and breed in the Antarctic summer. There are colonies on both the sub-Antarctic islands, and on the Antarctic continent and islands of the Peninsula. This one is taking a stroll along a beach in the Falkland Islands.
