Description

We tend think of penguins as rather large, feathered animals that live on icebergs and star in feature-length movies and cartoons. I was surprised to discover that penguins can also be found in holes in the loose pebbly soil of New Island in the Falkland Islands. The burrows were high up the hill, way above the sea, and they were very dry.

This is a second try at this panorama. Some of my younger gigapanners couldn't see the Magellanic Penguin in the first version, and the panorama certainly looked a lot darker on their monitors.

So here it is. Magellanic Penguin Burrows New Island Light.

Can you find a penguin in this panorama?
