how close were you?
as close as the picture indicates – close!
They must be used to people, to be able to stand there so bravely & feed their young. Really awesome & amazing photos John
I don’t know – is an ongoing debate at present, if they’re becoming too accustomed to people for their own safety, or whether they’ve yet to learn to be frightened of us. I tried staying as far as I could yet there were places/time like this when you couldn’t avoid beign very close, which owrked out very nicely for the shot but I do hope it doesn’t mean amazing encounters like this will help lead to harm for the penguins.
i know what you mean. Even in places like Yosemite, Yellowstone, etc. so many people, the Animals get used to them & in turn it usually turns out badly for the Animal
yeah, we’re a funny species, I say with little/no irony
wonderful image of a lovable creature
Thanks very much Robert!
