    First penguin (Rockhopper) type looks like a stereotypical crotchety old aunt, especially in the first pic

    Second one (Blackfoot) is darn near cute as heck :)

    The expression captured in Photo 1 is priceless! :D
    It looks as if it was also stamping his foot in that one, INSISTING in being recognised as The Penguin Queen. Very funny!
    Cool series.
    Where have you been. Same zoo again as where "your" otters are, too?

    OMG, what an EX-cellent series of penguin shots LP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aren't they just the funniest things to watch as they waddle/hop along? You've done an awesome job with these pics. [​IMG]

    I love the difference between the first/second and the third/fourth shots of the rockhoppers....in the first two they have nice coiffed feathers, and in the next two they're all wet and messed up (the young rebellious 'rockers', I guess).

    The second blackfoot looks so bedraggled...was it a chick just getting its feathers? It's so cuuuuuute. The blackfoot pair, and the last blackfoot shots are great 'portraits'.

    As for you, Arch, just who are you insinuating is a crotchety old 'aunt'???!!! (Crotchety! OLD?? Them's fighting words, bucko!) Guess I'm gonna hafta march over there, like the penguin in that first pic, and slap you upside the head with a fish or something [​IMG]

    Or better yet....
