[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Gentoo Penguin, Pygoscelis papua, is easily recognised by the wide white stripe extending like a bonnet across the top of its head. Chicks have grey backs with white fronts. Adult Gentoos reach a height of 75 to 90 cm (30-36 in), making them the largest penguins outside of the two giant species, the Emperor Penguin and the King Penguin. They are the fastest underwater swimming penguins, reaching speeds of 36 km/h.

Hi Ferran,
Lovely portrait with very good details. TFS
Best wishes,

Hi Ferran
Wonderful portrait. Very good colours and excellent sharpness.
And this remnants of patella on its beak is so funny (but I don't know if he liked that).
Thanks for presentation
