This was our first step
on the actual Antarctic continent. The Argentines have a base
here called the Argentine Almirante Brown Station. There is a
colony of Gentoo penguins here, easily recognized by their bright
orange beaks. The birds were in the middle of a 3-4 week molt
of all their feathers. On the cliffs were nests for a colony of
Blue-eyed Shags. The icebergs were a beautiful color of blue.
I can't believe how many Penguin pictures I took!
