[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This photo is a next steep for previous photo. This is an Gentoo Penguin landing on a shore. It is very dangerous time for birds in this moment they can be attack by Leopard Seal, also during storm weather it is risk of injury when the waves can hit a bird into a rocks or ice blocks.

Wouaw Piotr,
outstanding shot, fantasic colors and perfect focus,
well done and TFS,

marks for action capture and pose but not technical merit the whites seem blown.

Fabulous shot, If I didn't know better, I'd say this little guy had a brush with a seal or some other kind of predator (and came out on the winning side). I love the action, the composition, and the sharp, crisp details. Excellent shot - makes me wish I lived in such an area to grab such terrific shots.
