Interesting POV and sharp details on this cute penguin, Gil. But what kind of penguin is it?
A trip to Antarctica must be fascinating. : )
TFS. : )

Good shot! It's always nice to see penguins in their natural habitat. I'm not an expert, but I suspect this is a Gentoo Penguin (Pygoscelis papua). Composition's good. The only real area for improvement is the image quality, and that's a scanning problem more than anything - I'd use the Spot Healing Brush Tool to fix the white specks, and run it through a noise reduction program like NeatImage/Noiseware/NoiseNinja to get rid of the grain in the background. That said it's a nice capture, and it's good to see more shots from Antarctica here :-D
