18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
3 Antarctic Stooges

I was hoping to capture a penguin or group of penguins alone on a floating iceberg in Antarctica on my recent trip in February. As usual, nature has a way of adding some elements we were not expecting. The three penguins added a bit of humor to the photograph while posing in different silly ways. Nature is fabulously unpredictable.
