[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This Yellow Eyed penguin was photographed in Oamaru, in the South Island of New Zealand. These penguins climbs up along the cliffs to see the tourists ! :o)
They are very friendly, and so funny ! We've passed 2 hours to see them playing on the beach, and swimming.
A really good experience ;o)


Ce pinguin "Yellow Eyed" a été photographié à Oamaru, sur l'ile sud de la Nouvelle Zelande. Ces pinguins escaladent la falaise pour venir voir les touristes. :o) Il sont très gentils, et très drôle. Nous avons passé 2 heures à les regarder jouer sur la plage, nager, et se courir après. Une très belle expérience :o)

Salut Fred
A good close up of this bird. Your wait of 2hours was well worth it!
Tyanks for sharing

Hi Fred

Well done on this shot. The time of year you visited made for better photography opportunities. We were recently in the South Island and thoroughly enjoyed watching these amazing Penguins in their natural habitat. With the short winter days it made it difficult to photograph them with the use of flash prohibited.
