Pygoscelis adeliae II
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The Adélie Penguin, Pygoscelis adeliae, is a type of penguin common along the entire Antarctic coast and nearby islands. Aside from the storm petrel, they are the most southerly distributed of all seabirds. In 1830, French explorer Dumont d'Urville named them for his wife, Adélie. These penguins are about 30 to 50 cm in length and 4.5 kg (10 lbs) in weight. Distinctive marks are the white ring surrounding the eye and the feathers at the base of the bill. These long feathers hide most of the red bill. The tail is a little bit longer than other penguins' tails.|

This is a great shot. Excelent image with the sleepy pinguine covered by water drops. Very good image quality with clear sharp details. Very nice way of managing light and gray tones in the photo.
Thank you for sharing,
The stone nest is well demonstrated in your excellent image, showing the Penguin sitting on the eggs.
