Mr and Mrs King Penguins (aptenodytes patagonicus) … or maybe they’re just good friends. These two belong to the only gang of King Penguins in England, at Birdland.

Canon EOS 5D MkII with Canon EF 70-200mm L IS f/4

(incidentally I dropped that lens from around one metre onto concrete and it is still working fine! Kudos to Canon and what a clumsy marmot I am………….)

    This is precious, Krys. I love penquins. xo

  • Thanks Lori! It was a thrill to see this pingos as they are rare in captivity in the UK! They seemed to be having a good life though! ;o) xx
