Theme for November 2017 : Penguins

Here in Switzerland, the temperatures have dropped dramatically during the last days of October. As we move from October to November, we also move from a late summer to winter and I start to think of the cold months ahead.

At the same time, the beginning of November is the beginning of the season for trips to the Antarctic. My last trip to the Antarctic regions was to South Georgia in November 2013.

So my thoughts have turned to snow and ice, and with that penguins. Below I include some images from that trip to South Georgia as well as previous trips to the Antarctic peninsula and a semi-circumnavigation sailing from The Falkland Islands to Tasmania.

This collection includes images of five different penguin species. Can you identify them?
