Eye candy: Penguins!
Is it any wonder that the rest of the world pales once you have seen South Georgia, the island in the south polar seas close to Antarctica?
Showing no fear, it is they who come up to look the visitors over, appraising them and then bowing. All dressed for a party, looking identical to us, they can of course identify their own chick out of many thousands.
At times, they will nudge their brown fluffball of a youngster forward to be 'introduced'. The visitor melts at this point, and often the delight is mixed with a sprinkling of tears at the thought of this rare privilege. To those who love nature, South Georgia stands alone.
