Photographer's Note

In August 2010, a couple of hours' walk on the beach from Joaquina to Campeche in Florianopolis revealed the sad sight of no less than 20 dead penguins. Stranded by strong currents to take them all the way far north from their habitat and towards death by starvation, their fresh carcasses ended up as an unexpected meal for red-headed Turkey Vultures (Cathartes Aura).
