The Penguin Bath House

Brothers and photographers Will and Matt Burrard-Lucas traveled from London to Saunders Island in the Falkland Islands to take pictures of albatrosses, but quickly became distracted by the irresistible antics of an amusing troop of Rockhopper penguins. The Rockhopper Penguins form colonies of up to 100,000 in the Antarctic summer when they come ashore to lay eggs and raise their chicks. "Along the main route between the penguin colony and the sea is this fresh water spring with a small waterfall," said Will. This was an irresistible attraction for the penguins and throughout the day it was busy with squawking, squabbling, splashing birds. For more of Will & Matt’s photographs from the Falkland Islands, please visit:
