Royal Penguins

Macquarie Island, Australia
D500, 115mm, 1/800, f/8, ISO1000

It's Penguin Awareness Day, so here is a less frequently seen species.  Royal Penguins breed only on Macquarie Island, not a place that's heavily visited compared to other penguin locations.  They are charismatic, cheeky birds, as are many penguins.

Love it! so cute- the interaction and the amusing positions of their pink feet. It would make a great Penguin Day poster. :)
