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!
