Wildlife Wednesday: Antarctica

6 Comments

Now I realise that Antarctica technically isn’t wildlife. But it’s full of wildlife, albeit of a somewhat limited variety (we saw a total of 10 species of vertebrates, plus a couple of crustaceans and some algae in two months). And it only seems fair that I share some of that wildlife with you. I haven’t had time to properly edit the ~65GB of photos we took at Cape Bird this year, so here is a photo for every one of the 56 days we were in Antarctica. I hope you’ll forgive me the odd non-wildlife photo!  Hovering over a photo will give you some inane caption, while you can click on one and enter slideshow mode for a better view.  Enjoy!

More southern stories will follow soon….
