Yesterday was World Penguin Day. I set aside what I was going to post this week to continue to celebrate these charming animals. They surely deserve more than one day of celebration. I was lucky to take the trip of a lifetime in 2005 to Antarctica, the Falklands and South Georgia. It was fun to look at our trip through my old photos. I selected some to share with you today. I hope they bring a smile to your face. Today is day 45 for me being home during COVID19. I continue to try to keep a schedule and to do some constructive things to keep my mind and idle hands busy. I hope you are all safe and staying healthy.

These are beautiful!

I recently learned that the Mandarin word for penguin translates to “business goose”.

The best part of the Central Park Zoo for me is the Penguins.

Thank you for this celebration of one of my favorite creatures. Billy Collins, one of my favorite poets, recently noted that when something has a “Day” devoted to it, like Mothers and the Earth, that’s a sure sign they’re not getting their rightful due every other day of the year. Judy, your photos remind us just how special our natural world is 365 days a year. Thanks again!

Judy these are the most incredible penguin photos I have ever seen. What a thrilling experience and memory. Thanks for sharing. Glad to hear that you are doing well. My 8 furbabies keep me busy but I still can’t wait to get back to the zoo and tp photographing the animals. I was planning on going to the CPZ before this horror show happened but once it is open again I’ll be there. I’ll let you know when I go. Kiss to your furbabies.
