Photographer's Note

I liked this group of Gentoo penguins against the bluish ice cliff, each involved in a different activity.

Neko Harbour is a small bay on the west coast of Graham Land at 64 deg 50"S 62 deg 33' W. It was first seen and roughly charted by the Belgian Antarctic Expedition under Adrien de Gerlache, 1897-99 and named after Christian Salvesen's floating whaling factory Neko, which operated in the South Shetland Islands and Antarctic Peninsula area for many seasons between 1911 and 1924 and which often used this bay. There is a small hut here that was put up as an Argentinian refuge in 1949.
