The Rockhoppers had completed feeding and were returning home through the surf line.  Hard to isolate just two!

Cool behaviour. I think i would tend to go with a more conventional crop for presentation here. Give the penguins a little room on the right to pop into and take some off the top and bottom.
Thanks for looking,

Jake, very cool wave-hopping Rockhoppers, I like that airborne pose on the closer Penguin.  I can see by all the splash marks all around, just how hard it might be to creatively isolate and present your subject, but you caught the frenetic energy well.
