And you think YOU'RE having a bad hair day?! by 

Rather miserable looking and scraggy King Penguin fledgling (aptenodytes patagonicus) in the middle of moulting off his baby woolly feathers to become a sleek adult.

St Andrews Bay, South Georgia.

    Falling about chuckling to myself Krys….ooh he’s gorgeous. You can see his orange bit appearing around his neck. Aww bless him, he’s so cute. xxx

  • Thanks Lyn! He is comical isn’t he and at this age they’re quite curious about us humans, sneaking up behind you when you’re taking photos. I felt I wanted to take a brush to him, hahaha! ;o) x
