Photo of the Day: Magellanic Penguins On Peninsula Valdez, Argentina

Magellanic penguins dot the Argentina Patagonia landscape along the coast. Peninsula Valdez offers a myriad of sea life viewing opportunities including sea lions, elephant seals, penguins and if you are lucky, killer whales (orcas).

Signs detailed the penguins migrating and eating behaviors and also explained why they were currently shedding their fur.
