Posing Penguin

By dakasuju
Not a great picture, but was very enjoyable taking it. I was alone on this beach with many thousand penguins and fur seals, taking photos of the King chicks when this King came up, put his head on my shoulder to look at what I was doing, He then walked round to inquisitively look into the camera. A magical moment. The location is Right Whale bay NW of S Georgia
