[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was watching this Adelie penguin sliding along on his belly on the snow. He/she didn't see the stone and ran right onto it, paddled fruitlessly once or twice and then got to his feet and waddled around it. I couldn't take any more photos because I was laughing so hard. ;o)
Adelies really are the funniest of the Antarctic penguins.
