It is not unusual to see couples and newlyweds walking hand in hand on the beach. They adore their partners and cherish every moment spent together. The eyes and small gestures like hugging and hand-holding express the special affection for the other half. Their hearts are overflowing with love and joy.
An old video of a penguin couple holding hands while walking along a South African beach recently went viral again. It’s a romantic scene that would make any lonely soul jealous. Some people make amusing comments about why these marine creatures don’t find partners. I can’t stop laughing as I read these funny comments.
The couple walks alongside each other. They even pause for a brief moment to share glances. Time seems to stand still for a few moments there. Nature and animals soften the hardest parts of our hearts. Happiness, it turns out, is straightforward.
Norma Landeros-Ramirez captured these lovely moments while she and her husband were on their honeymoon. They were taken aback by the penguin couple’s thoughtful gesture. The newlyweds hoped that they would be able to spend peaceful days together like the penguins.
“Since my husband and I are newlyweds, I wanted to see the penguins because I have heard that they keep one partner for life, so it seemed fitting,” Norma said.
Penguins, as you may know, are extremely loyal birds. The male-female bond is extremely strong. Gentoos, the most faithful and monogamous penguin species, almost always pair up with the same partner during mating season.
