The thing with taking photos of wild animals in their natural habitat is to be inconspicuous and to take candid photos of wild animals simply being wild animals. To be able to capture a certain behaviour without interfering with them is a combination of patience and well.. to be honest, luck. For example, a breaching orca or a leopard seal yawning on an ice on Christmas Day, 2017.
This day however, in the South Shetland Islands was a special one with a small breeding colony of Gentoo Penguins and their chicks. At the moment I took the photo this one chick spotted me and I was busted... No doubt, I looked like a bizarre giant with a blue and yellow coloured skin but either way its a moment we acknowledged one another.
