The World’s Most Lovable Bird

The World’s Most Lovable Bird

When visiting a place like Antarctica it’s hard to find superlatives that can describe the beauty, remoteness and wonder that Antarctica evokes.  Regardless of the adjectives you use to describe Antarctica, most visitors will agree that one of the highlights of the trip is spending time with the local residents, the penguins.  It’s hard to watch them waddle and not smile or to observe the mother, child chase and not laugh.  Penguins are quite possibly the world’s most lovable bird.

A baby penguin chases its mother for food, a game of tag I could watch for hours.

I’ve never been much of a ornithologist, in fact I find bird watching boring, but the penguins in Antarctica could change my mind.  Their antics are downright hilarious.  I can’t imagine observing these guys without giggling.    So, that is my challenge to you, browse through the pictures below and try not to grin.  I bet you can’t do it.

This curious gentoo penguin seems to be trying to make sense of his own reflection.

Having a bad hair day?  This guy can sympathize.

Penguins are excellent swimmers and watching them jump from the water and propel themselves forward makes me smile in amazement.

This guy is just drying off after a swim.

The penguin chicks are definitely the cutest and being able to witness this moment was pretty awesome.

No, this penguin isn’t dead he’s just taking a nap.  I laughed out loud when I came across this guy passed out on the ground.

Now, if these pictures don’t lift your mood , nothing will.  Go ahead, bookmark this page and open it up anytime you’re having trouble finding a reason to smile- this should do the trick.
