Gentoo Penguin

Yes, another special day. After Earth Day, today is World Penguin Day. And the second international day devoted to penguins, after Penguin Awareness Day on January 20th. But for a group of birds this nice, two special days is justified.

Then the question, how does one celebrate World Penguin Day… I really have no clue, apart from posting a nice penguin picture…

This Gentoo Penguin was taking a rest in the snow at Neko Harbour. Most of the time pictures are taken from the side in a situation like this. I decided to lay down in the snow myself and take a nice symmetrical image from the front. The penguin didn’t mind, he (or she) just kept sleeping.
