The photo at 1:12 took my breath away. And the penguin photos - I loved the hunched shoulders. It was as if they were carrying the world on their shoulders! Thanks for sharing.

For those brief 2 mins, I felt like I was there. I never get tired of looking at those pictures!

These birds are the best in the world only because you bring life to them in voicing this piece.  I think of penguins now and I think of your description of them and it’s wonderful, it’s educational,  but mostly I am inspired to appreciate them more because of this!

Love the pics and the story. I’m headed for Antarctica in a few months so watching the audio slideshow about your experience makes me all the more eager to begin my trip.
