Why Penguins?

D / E

When I have been first to Antarctica in 2010 I was amused by these cute fellows. Comparing to human beeings they seem to be limited as they have very short legs and no hands. And they do not have a complex verbal language. But anyway, they do a lot of communication and they do succeed: They find each other in the mass, they seem to know what their doing and they even chat romantically. Communicating hereby is not reduced on auditive output but also connected to movements of the body. Penguins need a functioning communication system since they do a lot of things as a team. They have to adapt to tough and always changing environmental conditions. Penguins perhaps are the kings and queens of agile communication.

If not mentioned otherwise, photographs and sketches are made by myself. More of my pictures are introduced on my foto-homepage www.verspiegelt.ch.
