Penguins Comforting Each Other After Losing Their Partners And A Photographer has Captured It
Tobias Baumgaertner is a wildlife photographer. Even though he has captured many stunning photos only a few reach out and take people’s hearts. The below photos are one of them that are featuring a beautiful display of affection.
Tobias spent three nights with a colony of little penguins, or fairy penguins, in Melbourne, Australia in 2019. A pair separated themselves from the bunch and he noticed it. One had its flipper draped over the other in what looked like a loving embrace.
He wrote, “While all the other penguins were sleeping or running around, those two seemed to just stand there and enjoy every second they had together.”

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 firstname.lastname@example.org <—
The loss connected the two penguins.
He explained, “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.”
Even if it took days to capture their bond, Tobias left with two perfect shots and two examples of how love can heal. Tobias shared the photos on Instagram, writing, “During times like this the truly lucky ones are those that can be with the person/people they love most” after the coronavirus outbreak was declared a pandemic in March.
His photos went viral, spreading happiness to many people. As one person put it, “It’s the cutest, most heartwarming thing I’ve ever seen.”

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
Even though they can’t talk, they give an important message: we’ll get through this difficult time if we stick together.
Share these incredible pictures with your friend and family to enjoy. 🙂
