18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Chinstrap Penguin on Robert Island

I was on a trip to Antarctica. The weather was amazing - no wind and hardly any clouds for two weeks. We were on our final landing of the trip at Robert Island. We had to navigate past young male furs seals, that were quite aggressive. I lagged behind the group, looking for good photo opportunities.
