I promised a second update today, but I’m not going to be able to do it in full – sorry.
New Island was incredible. We hit shore around 3:30 PM and I stayed till 7:30 PM (the last possible minute) shooting Rockhopper Penguins, Blue Eyed Shag, Black Browed Albatross, Upland Geese, and many other birds.
It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! I have never seen such dense concentrations of wildlife ever! There was endless photography candy between the thousands of Rockhopper penguins and Albatross all mixed in together. Between the nesting, the flying, the hopping, the landings, the courting, the fighting…geez….it is too much to comprehend.
I have over 14GBs of photos to take off 3 different memory cards now, and I better get to it. Tomorrow is supposed to be Elephant Seals, Gentoo Penguins, more Rockhoppers, and more Cormorants – cool! After that, we’re off to the main show: South Georgia.
