This Adelie Penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae) came over to investigate us as we cruised along side a small iceberg. He came so close we had to down size our lenses to give him the photo shoot he was seeking. Maybe because he was not on land he was not at all shy and we had lots of time to complete his model portfolio.
