Photographer's Note

Adult King penguins.
The King penguin is the second largest penguin. It is sometimes confused with the larger Emperor penguin since they both have yellow/orange ear patches, but Kings also have this color on their breast.
They are found on many sub-Antarctic islands including Crozet, Prince Edward , Kerguelen, South Georgia and Mazquarie Islands. Total population is estimated to be 1 million breeding pairs.

The photo was scanned from a print, run through NeatImage (default settings), and then I used PhotoShop's sharpening filter on top of that.
