    Wow: You really captured the motion here with those bubbles enhancing the sense of movement … so graceful. Wonderful detail too.

  • Thanks Richard! Just wanted to show how graceful these guys are in the water when they look so comical on land! He was very obliging – keeping nicely to the front of the tank so there was no watery haze in the photo! ;o)

  • Thanks Ellen! I was lucky that this penguin swam right next to the glass so there was no haze from the water! ;o)
