Yellow Eyed Penguin Pair

Eye to Eye
I studied these two penguins for about 4 hours. Most of the time they stood about 3 to 5 feet apart very busily plucking out their summer plummage as they readied themselves for the arrival of winter. On one occasion they came together and offered some very unique images as they assisted each other with the cleaning. After I shuttered what I felt were some unusual images of the action, I decided it was time to pack up and get on with seeing the rest of New Zealand, then suddenly a sea fog moved between us and the morning sun, giving me a soft, warm, diffused light that was perfect. I couldn't leave now! Instead I spent yet another hour with my eye glued to the eyepiece and my finger on the shutter button. I was greatly rewarded when the pair briefly moved together again and offered me some adorable images of the rarest penguins in the world, images that were even better than before, both in quality of light and in composition.
