    Penguins - Betty's Bay

    So, I took myself off to see the Pen-guys in Betty's Bay. First off I should say these little guys are an endangered species. I was lucky as there are two time of the year you get a great show. In December, when the little buggers are molting, so cannot swim, and in Feb when they are nesting their young.

    So here goes:

    here's some info on the Cape Penguine



    then we met the little buggers



    of course, there's a show off or two









    but this cheeky little bugger had me going for hours



    anyone who knows me, knows that's a William stance!

    Good stuff Wiliam.
    I'd like to get down and see the Emperor penguins sometime.
    Preferably not in winter.

    You're right. Was thinking of taking one of those excursions offered a little further south...like to McMurdo Sound and such.
    Long-term plan...
