A walk in the beach

A pair of king penguins walk to the beach in the early morning hours. Each day, both parents go out into the rich sub-antarctic waters fishing for krill and small fish and crusteceos in order to keep up with the enormous appetite of the chick.

SPANISH: Pareja de Reyes camino a la playa
Pareja de pingüinos Rey caminando al unísono en dirección a la playa para tomar su baño matutino. Ambos padres salen a buscar alimento durante el dia en las ricas aguas sub-antarcticas y asi poder saciar el enorme apetito de su cria.
Las parejas tienden a copiar todos los movimientos y gestos de su pareja por lo que es común verlos caminar y cuidar su plumaje al unísono.

Location (lugar): Volunteer Point, East shores of East Falkland Island (costas de la isla Malvina del este).

Great light—so nice and crisp. These birds have a perceived body language. They look like they are taking a walk and having a discussion. Nicely done.

Fantastic gallery. Do you have more penguin pictures? I have a girl friend that likes penguins a lot and finds them very relaxing to watch.
