We disembarked in zodiacs and landed on the small island of Isla Martillo, the home of a colony of Magallenic penguins. A much larger, more colorful penguin was standing among his black and white cousins. Maria, our biologist guide said, "He is a lost King Penguin. I've never seen one here before...." At that moment, he lifted his head and a rainbow appeared behind him.
Location: Isla Martillo, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina
