[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Magellanic Penguin
Spheniscus magellanicus
Breeding Range: Chile, Argentina and Falkland Islands
Length: 70cm.
World Population: 1,800,000 breeding pairs.
The Magellanic penguin is around 70cm long, and has an average weight of about 4kg. The head and upper parts are black apart from two broad white stripes beneath the throat; one running up behind the cheeks and above the eye to join the pinkish gape, the second running adjacent to the white underparts with which they merge above the legs. Females are slightly smaller than the males, but have similar plumage.

Hi Isabel, I like the idea of the composition. Too bad you lost on sharpness, overall its a bit soft.

Cute penguins in an interesting pose. I have seen magellanic penguins at the zoo in artificial holes, but this is so much better. Thank you for showing me the real thing. : )
Well done and TFS. : )
