    Lovely image of this penguin. The surroundings looks great too.

  • Thanks, Debbie. The water and the algae did provide a very colorful background for this little fella.

    A great and unusual wildlife image with excellent color, exposure and dof. Also the penguin was caught in a great pose.

  • Thank you Stephen! I was lucky to be there when this little fellow was basking in the sun…

    Wonderful image of the rarest of all penguins. Thank you for sharing this with us.

  • Thank you! I didn’t realize how rare it is – I guess I was lucky to see quite a few when I was in New Zealand.
