[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Windy cloudy weather. Aitcho Island near Antarctic Peninsula. We've found on the high cliff a large colony of gentoo penguins (Pigoscelis papua).

The total population of gentoos is between 300,000 and 350,000, most living south of Antarctic Convergence.

Some of penguins had very small chicks, some only eggs... Incubation period is 31—38 days.
