[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Located in the quaint coastal town of Betty’s Bay in the Overberg, the Stony Point Nature Reserve is home to a unique colony of African Penguins. Stony Point offers the public the chance to see these wonderful flightless birds up close, via the boardwalk through the colony, which allows the public to observe the penguins go about their daily activities in their natural habitat, without disturbing or disrupting them.

Hi Gee hoo,
Splendid capture with nice perspective and positioning of the cute little creatures. I especially like the shallow focus which directs the eye to the closest penguin.
Warm regards,

Hello Gee

Nice capture of these birds in their natural habitat. not much room for our wild friends around the world. Nice capture.
