CommentA little loving in the snow, ice and mud on the Antarctic Peninsula. Gentoo Penguins breed on the sub-Antarctic islands such as Heard and Macquarie; rare vagrant to southern Tasmania.

Moderator's note: this is likely subspecies elssworthii based on location where photo taken. Subspecies papua, which is slightly larger in size, breeds on the sub-Antarctic islands such as Heard and Macquarie.
