Description

Probably the most popular bird on the planet, and the only one that walks upright, the penguin cannot fly but is a champion swimmer. There are no penguins at the North Pole, their home is in the Southern Hemisphere; from South Africa to the Galapagos Islands, and in New Zealand, Australia and as far south as Antarctica. Photographer Grant Sheehan became a penguin fan on a recent first visit to Antarctica and the remote islands between there and New Zealand. Birds they may be, but they often appear to behave in human-like ways. Fanciful interpretations have been made as to what might be being said - if they could speak - or think - by these fascinating creatures as they go about their lives in the harsh environments that make up what we can call Planet Penguin(c).
