Back from my trip and straight back to work, to pay for it. I haven't had much time to catch up with you, but I will make every effort to, over the next few days.
A couple of shots of a Gentoo Penguin diving into the icy water and others in the background, one nesting. The air temperature was 0c and water 7c.
I hope you like Penguins. There will be a few more Penguin shots uploaded I'm sure, I took quite a few.
Thanks for all your kind votes and comments, and thanks for looking in.

Steve.
