Hey, you're too close
Very good capture.
It is a pity you didnt get the eyes (yes, I know is hard with a black face!)
Another lovely shot, Karin - well composed and framed with a nice level view of the penguins. My in-laws are heading to the Falklands, South Georgia and Antartica at the end of this year...i envy them and you!
Good wee note as well, well done all round.
LoL So funny title for your picture. Nice capture again:)
sharp and great detail. TFS , regards Josée

Indeed a very nice couple and nicely "shot". Maybe a little room on the right side of the picture would've helped the composition even better.

excellent and funny capture... I would have loved to be there.... thanks for sharing...
Penguins are my true favorites animals... just love them...
Great note on the approaching rules for penguins! But your focus was still on 300mm, so these must still be obeying the 5 metre rule they didn't understand :-).
Nice one! Dennis
The note really made me smile :-)

Wow! Nice one. Penguins are so popular these days, and from this photo, I can totally see why! Excellent close up, colours, symmetry, and fascinating place. Well done!
I have fallen in love with your penguin shots! This one is precious and funny all at once. Thanks for the great note, too:)
Love this, quite humorous as they remind me of a couple of guys off out on the town for the night, good sharpness and clarity and excellent colours.
Among my TL Top Five members with the best sense of humour, you are about to kick one member out (^_^) LOL !
Lovely post !
I won't name all five, but incidently, we have a few here.
In Holland we have a really annoying activity called 'bumperkleven'. It's when you're driving on the highway and another car comes up right behind you and sticks real close to your car because it can't pass you.
Well, this looks a lot like it! Haha, LOL.
Great stuff, but great picture also.
this is a really nice photo and one of the reasons because I go now for a jurney to Antarctica this year too.
It is possible to contact you via eMail? I have some easy questions.

Beautiful capture and wonderful scene,
this weekend I was able to attended a DVD - Pingüim Emperor's March -, I am frightened and admired of like them they are an united colony, as much the males as the females they help her mutually.
A Beautiful film and sells these here I remembered the film.
Congratulations for capture and his good taste.

Hi Karin,Wow! This is a great shot of the two penquins. Their stance and the sharpness is excellent.Yes, I would like to have seen their eyes but such a comic shot I don't think that matters. Well done. Pat.

OK Karin, considering the size I believe that the smaller one,in the back is the "wife" but if so, how come she doesn`t have a hand in his pocket?:)
Beautiful,gorgeous "family portrait" and a lesson about "social life" in Antarctica.
And a smile,too:)
