Oh, how sad he looks! Guess he's feeling the same as the rest of us with the weather! Nicely captured right down to that drip at the end of his beak.

A super image, Philip, good detail in his plumage, and I love the drop of water on the end of his beak Smile Carol

It's the drip that makes the picture. I'm not into animals, least of all zoo captives, but this is a rather endearingly quirky portrait very well cropped. It just fits so neatly into the square.

Love the droplet at the end of the penguins beak. Could almost be a tear drop as penguin looks so sad Smile Smile
