Good photos, reminded me of my trip to Antarctica. It was last year when I had a gift, trip to Antarctica https://poseidonexpeditions.com/antarctica/, because I love penguins. I really wanted to see them in a natural habitat. My dream has come true, I am eternally grateful to my friends for this gift.
