We love this!
An imperial shag, a type of cormorant, based in Patagonia’s Beagle Channel, is going home with some seaweed for his nest, his forward movement impeded by a stiff head wind.
During the Voyage of the Beagle journey, Darwin wrote of such sights:
“I do not doubt that every traveller must remember the glowing sense of happiness which he experienced when he first breathed in a foreign clime where civilized man had seldom or never trod.”
We encountered these sights on a daily basis as we cruised in Darwin’s wake some years ago. Nature was breathtakingly beautiful.
