This my third and final attempt at uploading tonight. There seems to be a problem with the site today.

This is a Gentoo Penguin, one of 18 species of penguin world wide. All live in the southern hemisphere except one which lives on or around the Galapagos islands on the equator.
The Gentoo is one of five peguin species I photographed this trip so I hope you don't get too bored with me uploading them.
Many thanks for the C&C's on my previuos upload.
Steve.

A really well timed and composed action shot. Is there a bit of a colour cast here?

Super action capture, Steve. Lovely clarity and icy blue tones - very challenging capture in view of the reflective light and this works really well.
