While going for a walk around the rocky coast track in Bicheno I found a dead fairy penguin. They are common in the area but found at night near the sea. They are protected and are a popular tourist attraction.
I don’t know what happened to this little fella.
I do love the texture of his feathers and the rocks.
This was taken on my nikon D80 with Nikkor 18-135mm lens.
f22, 1/100 exp. iso 400. with custom black and white settings for maximum contrast.
