Gentoo Penguins Porpoising

Penguins Porpoising in Antarctica

Gentoo Penguins Porpoising

Capturing these penguins porpoising in Antarctica as they rocket out of the water at speeds of up to 36 kmh (22 mph) was definitely a challenge.    There were many, many frames where I had nothing but water in the shot.

What you don’t see from this shot is that only a few minutes before there were a group of 30 or so Gentoo Penguins porpoising towards us.   The number had petered out a bit by the time they got to us, but it was still another incredible Antarctic moment!
