I am off to Patagonia for a wildlife photo shoot of mostly penguins, pelagic birds, seals and whales. The Penguin breeding ranges are quite huge, spanning a large swathe of the southern part of South America, mostly in the countries of Chile, Argentina and the Falkland Islands. South Georgia is off my itinerary on this trip.
The species I hope to photograph are the Macaroni, Magellanic, Gentoo, Southern RockHopper and King penguins. The Cetacean sightings may include Orcas, Humpbacks, Southern Right and Minke whales plus dolphins. Pelagic birds may include a few species of Albatrosses, Petrels, Seagulls, Ducks, etc.

Canon is expected to announce the EOS-1D X Mark II early February, perhaps while I am still away. Wish me luck and in the meantime, you can see my equipment bag and works from past photo shoots on MichaelDanielHo.com
