    Is that another Leucistic penguin chick there on the right (just below and to the left of the whale bone)? Lucy's nephew, Lucius?

    Hi, @SitandSlide . It might be! I'll look more closely. It's such a pixelated view I can't be certain. Let's keep watch for this little one!

    When I get a chance to concentrate I'll look through my Port Lockroy collection, see if I can spot little Lucius. 😃

    Nice! Do we know what'll be in the next batch? More new locations, or filling in the missing 59 minutes of each hour?

    😄 We'll know when we see them!

    It don't see a leucistic penguin here. I consider it as a penguin heading to the camera with its dirty belly. I think I can see a black back

    on the right side of the belly. Don't you see it? I would be more careful with calling something a leucistic penguin. This one is not visible well enough.

    @yshish- Are we looking at the same penguin? We're looking near the closer end of the whale bone, with an adult on the right facing left, and the pale chick on the left, facing right.

    Yes, I was looking at the cropped image made by Joan so we are definitely talking about the same guy.

    OK, That's good. 😉 We have been cautious, but I can remove my tags for now. Images are in a collection- also 1 of the Chinstrap you saw.

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    I am convinced but happy to wait and watch.

    My Leucistic collection is a Tag group so all images with "#leucistic" will end up there no matter what is really displayed in the image, and I can't control that.

  • yshish by yshish moderator, translator

    So thanks for removing the tags. I prefer using them in the sure cases only. 😃

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    I am sure, but in respect have tried to remove the tag for this image. As happened before, it will not work. Sorry. I'll keep trying.

    Posted

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    And I think as long as your post contains the tag it will still show up in your tag group.

    Ah, it wasn't supposed to change into a tag with the * symbol in front of # but they have changed that. Thanks for mentioning that.

    Have you tried zooming in the Joan's cropped image? Don't you see the dark back(on the right side of the body)? We see mostly the belly with dirt in the front.

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    I accept your experienced opinion and release this discussion to you. 😃 I will keep trying to remove my tag.

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    It appears we were hasty to conclude that these images show a leucistic penguin.

  • gardenmaeve by gardenmaeve moderator

    Excitement can cloud the judgement. Please keep an eye out for even better photos, showing the back, wings and head.

  • yshish by yshish moderator, translator

    Thanks. Will keep my eyes open! 😃
