I think the expressions on the penguins’ faces says it all. The chick is looking deranged from the trauma of moulting (and adolescence!) and the parent is wondering whether their offspring is a penguin or actually a feathery hedgehog!

Adelie Penguins (pygoscelis adeliae), Coronation Island, South Orkneys.
