The King on Bing

I was happy to see a very young King Penguin on Bing this morning.

This photo was taken on South Georgia Island by Tony Ernst. I hope to visit this island some day, as it’s home to one of the largest King Penguin colonies on the planet. Kings aren’t the largest penguins on this planet — Emperors have that honor — but they certainly look plenty big in pictures.

South Georgia also happens to be where Ernest Shackleton died and is buried.

And the island is home to the remnants of a massive whale processing company — hopefully something that will remain a relic.
