Rockhopper Penguins
Photographer: Anne Leong
Location: Saunders Island in the Falklands
Rockhopper penguins are my favoriate kind of penguins because they look like rock stars with their colorful shock of hair (like the macaronis) and they hop! Utimate cute! At Saunders Island, I loved to watch them swim back to the island en mass from the Atlantic. They seemed to synchronize their return and the scene reminded me of the March of the Penguins! Taken on 1/20/2014.
