I spent some time in Antarctica a few weeks ago, and besides photographing beautiful landscapes, I couldn't help but document the cute penguins. I quickly got addicted to taking these wildlife pictures as they're just so nice to watch⁠—their amusing movements, cute interactions with little chicks, and even their funny penguin way of walking.

I could sit there and just watch them for hours. Being on the islands of Antarctica with the penguins and other wildlife, like seals and especially whales, was just magical. The whole experience was something unreal. We went there during a period of many penguin chicks, so I captured a bunch of them—cuteness overload!

One week after I returned from my wildlife photography trip, the highest temperature ever of 18.3C was recorded. When I was there, the temperature was rather normal for summer (around 0-5C). I hope that global warming will have a limited effect on Antarctica and its wild animals and our future generations will be still able to see this magical side of our planet.

On a side note: I went to Greenland last summer and climate change was really noticeable there. Let's hope we can enjoy Antarctica and it's adorably funny birds for a long, long time!
