for those who couldn't wait....little blue penguins

These shots were taken during the morning feeding at the Napier Aquarium.  They have 13 of these adorable creatures and they all had to take a swim for their health in the chilly water. Here's a little more information on the cuties.





The tank was in shadows and I couldn't edit them to my satisfaction, but they'll have to do until next time.

Hi Betty yes they are adorable. On my post today, I have, what we call in my town of Bangor, "Bangor Penguins" because they walk like Penguins. Of course they are not Penguins but Black Guillemots. and today You will see chicks of them and see them walking in the video.
