    Penguins don't have binocular vision, so that penguin is not looking at the camera. 😉 We see instead body language showing aggression.

    In general the penguins appear to quickly become used to the automated cameras. It's not as if a person was standing in their faces making photos. 😉

    Instead, each camera ( often more than one camera) is fastened to a tall pole and the pole is stabilized in a wire basket of large stones.

    Thus Dr. Tom Hart and his colleagues have planned for the barest minimum of stress to the penguins. 😃

    BTW, we're on 98 % done with the current data set (and the number's still growing!) So exciting 😃

    Wow impressive! Well I hope there will be enough pictures left for me to reach 1.000 classified photos 😉

    Posted

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    There are already new images ready to be released. You'll have plenty of opportunities to reach that goal. 😃

    Thanks for the good news, @yshish .

    Posted

  • Purrfect_Penguin by Purrfect_Penguin

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    Fortunately, it's not a competition. Every image you mark carefully is one more step for helping the penguins. 😄

    Posted

  • Purrfect_Penguin by Purrfect_Penguin

    True, not a competition & I'm doing my best to catch them all... 😉

  • Purrfect_Penguin by Purrfect_Penguin

    @AvastMH if you stop classifying I might have a chance 😉

  • linda790 by linda790

    more done than I do and catch up. As gardenmaeve says it's not a race, but seeing those figures rise is nice. When you're a

  • linda790 by linda790

  • AvastMH by AvastMH moderator
