Swapping kisses, Martillo Island, Beagle Channel

The most logical go-to when I’m in desperate need of a break from the news?

Pictures of these oddly-cute thigh-high creatures that I met on Martillo Island on Argentina’s Beagle Channel four years ago yesterday. I hope they made it back this year and are doing well.

In case you missed it, I posted at length about that visit here (with lots of pics!).

But first, if you’re in need of a brief mental health break today, as tens of millions of you most certainly are, take the next 60 seconds to enjoy this video that shows Magellanic Penguins doing what they do best: mostly staring blankly at the violent waves, their flippers flapping in the stiff winds.

You’re welcome.




Today’s Pic du Jour, the site’s 1,125th straight, was snapped on 31 January 2013, on Martillo Island, Beagle Channel, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina.

      You’re a better man than me. Working on it, but I’m far from Master class.

    Yes, penguins could sort out the world.

    Refreshing, taking you to where you’ve never been before, and reminding that there’s so much beyond the horizon, that is fascinating, magical, and with these penguins unexplainably, endearing.
