Of all creatures great and small, Penguins have to be my favourite.
I found this handsome family of Rockhopper penguins on the Falkland Islands when I was privileged to go ashore at Port Stanley.
At the time I was working as a guest speaker aboard a very large cruise ship and due to weather conditions it was touch and go as to whether we might be able get ashore.
To my utter delight via one of the ships small tenders we eventually did and I had the thrill of seeing hundreds of these charming creatures in their natural environment up close and personal!
