O fotógrafo de vida selvagem Tobias Baumgaertner está respeitando o distanciamento social, mas acabou se deparando com uma cena que não tinha como não ser fotografada! No bairro de St. Kilda, em Vitória, na Austrália, um casal de pinguins aproveitou o isolamento dos humanos para ter um encontro romântico numa praia deserta.

During times like this the truly lucky ones are those that can be with the person/people they love most. I captured this moment about a year ago. These two Fairy penguins poised upon a rock overlooking the Melbourne skyline were standing there for hours, flipper in flipper, watching the sparkling lights of the skyline and ocean. A volunteer approached me and told me that the white one was an elderly lady who had lost her partner and apparently so did the younger male to the left. Since then they meet regularly comforting each other and standing together for hours watching the dancing lights of the nearby city. I spend 3 full nights with this penguin colony until I was able to get this picture. Between not being able or allowed to use any lights and the tiny penguins continuously moving, rubbing their flippers on each other’s backs and cleaning one another, it was really hard to get a shot but i got lucky during one beautiful moment. I hope you enjoy this moment as much as I did. #lovewillalwayswin • 📸 @tobiasvisuals •Shot on Nikon Z6, Nikkor 50mm 1.4, ISO 8000, 50mm, f/1.4, 1/60 sec

Tobias foi avisado por um voluntário que trabalha com vida marinha que, desde que começaram a “namorar”, há uns três anos, estes pinguins se encontram frequentemente e ficam assim abraçadinhos. “Eles ficam juntos por horas olhando as luzes dançantes da cidade”, contou o fotógrafo no Instagram.

    A fidelidade dos pinguins é uma das características mais famosas do mundo animal. Várias espécies são consideradas monogâmicas – e, aparentemente, estão aproveitando a situação de quarentena global por causa do coronavírus para ter dates ainda mais discretos e intimistas.

    Olha só que fofos eles abraçados, olhando o céu e as luzes da cidade:

    Pinguins Part 2. “… Love is the only game in which we win even when we lose” The way that these two lovebirds were caring for one another stood out from the entire colony. While all the other penguins were sleeping or running around, those two seemed to just stand there and enjoy every second they had together, holding each other in their flippers and talking about penguin stuff. Pain has brought them together (see PART 1). I guess sometimes you find love when you least expect it. It’s a privilege to truly love someone, paradisiacal when they love you back. 📸 @tobiasvisuals • (Even though it is very similar to the previous image I thought it’d be a pity to not share it with you guys) • • —>FOR PRINTS PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO tobiasvisuals@gmail.com <—
