It was fascinating to watch the animal behavior, especially when I would just placed the camera on the tripod and walk away. They usually just ignored it (as seen in the example just above), but occasionally there would be some natural curiosity about this "thing" that was just sitting there. Here's more pictures of penguins and other stuff at Saint Andrews and after we spent the morning there, we then headed to Maiviken, South Georgia.
