You are a lucky person to see such wondrous things. This is a superb capture, it looks like you've caught them in the midst of a water cooler chat.
Fantastic lights and shadows, excellent sharpness, superb composition.
Thanks for sharing

I love it! Great shot! Very nice!

Great shot! Really lovely animals.. very impressive to be so close to them. Here we can only see them in the Zoo..

Like the picture. Good composition and great DOF. Very nice!

Hi Piotr,

What a stunning image you have captured here. The birds on their own would be a great shot but to include the magnificent surroundings as well makes this one a winner in my book. The PoV, DoF, composition and timing couldn't be bettered.



Hi Piotr,
They look so clean and well groomed!
Very well composed image with great clarity in colours and plessant details in the birds...
Low point of view works very well, and gives them this fine background!

Hello Piotr
Another great shot!

Hello Piotr,

Very nice picture of those 2 penguins talking to each other! I like very much the way they stand: they look like 2 little furry toys! You got an incredible pov by having the glacier in the bg! I like also the blue color coming from lots of elements! Great job and TFS,
