King penguin stepping over rock with another

from 25.00

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 in St Andrew’s Bay, South Georgia, in February 2016.
ISO 200, 135mm, f/5, 1/640
