Look at Me!!

Salisbury Plain, South Georgia and the Sandwich Islands

I just love these little king penguin chicks. They are so the polar opposite in behavior compared to most of the adult kings, for it is just like what you would expect from a 2 year old human kid. Not only are they the loudest ones on this plain, squawking left and right as if “Look at me mom and dad!! Look what I can do!! I can flap my wings!!” to running around like crazed lunatics, amped up on sugar, again, like a 2 year old kid. Most of the adults, when a chick was doing something annoying or running into them, had this exasperated look on their faces like “Hey George, is this your kid? Can you tell him to knock it off?"
