Onsdag

Kom meg ut en tur idag i finværet 🌞 Fortsatt kaldt, men mye lysere og snøen har begynt å smelte for fullt.
Anskaffet meg en fredslilje. De er kjent for å være luftrensende. Elsker å omringe meg med planter. Håper jeg klarer å holde den i livet 😄🌿

World penguin day

So cute. Widowed penguins in Melbourne.

Some cool penguin facts for world penguin day:

– There are currently 17-26 types of penguins, depending on definition (I read many conflicting definitions). Emperor, adélie and macaroni penguins being my favourites 😁

– Male penguins searches their habitat for the perfect stone to present their chosen female. They mate for life and they both take care of their offspring.

– Penguins are defined as birds although they cannot fly. Their wings are made for swimming. They are great in water, but a bit awkward on land.

– Penguin feathers are shorter and stiffer than most bird feathers, which makes penguins more streamlined in the water and traps more air to keep them warm.

Southern rockhopper penguin, native to the Falkland Islands. Amazing photo 😄👌🏻
Macaroni penguins. The most abundant penguin species.
Emperor penguins. Tallest of the penguin species. “These penguins nest almost exclusively on Antarctic sea ice, making them the only bird species that never sets foot on land.”

Adélie penguins, small and fierce.
