King penguin stepping over rock by another

By NickDale      
A king penguin looks down and wonders what's lying on the beach: is it an egg to nest on or just a rock to step over? Another penguin is having a look, too, and they both have black and orange heads, white breasts with orange patches at the throat, grey backs and flippers and black feet. Shot with a Nikon D810 on South Georgia, in February 2016..ISO 200, 135mm, f/5, 1/640
