[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
No visit of Cape Point without a picture of the African Penguin (Spheniscus demersus).

National park, nature reserve, private game reserve, rehabilitation center, zoological garden..., differences and similitudes, a debate I had in mind all along my journey through South Africa...

Wonderful shot of lovely Spheniscus demersus. It is a reality that Cape without penguin is impossible, Paul. Thank you very much for sharing this beauty. Well done.

Interesting subject and beautiful photo Paul! Good composition, wonderful colours and very good sharpness.

Just perfect compo,sharpness and what makes it outstanding lovely bg

Hello Paul

One never associates Penguins with Africa, so it comes as a little shock before one realises that the cape is way down south. Nice photo in typical penguin pose.
