Psst-I think we're being watched!

A group of King Penguins looking at me with trepidation. I am due back from the Falklands in the next few weeks after six months down here. Expect lots more where these came from.

There's always something good about a shot you can add heaps of captions to.
I love the interaction between the birds.

One nit,
You should get down lower to do away with the pretty awful background.

On the subject of the background, the colony of penguins top-left are there to show the surroundings the birds live in, and that I wasn't at some zoo or other. They are clearer in the full-size image and give some depth and appreciation of the wilderness down here (IMHO). Must admit it does detract in the resized version. Thanks for all the comments. It's good to be back in the fold.
