Photographer's Note

As you know, there are several species for penguins .The African penguin , also known as the "jackass penguin" and "black-footed penguin" is a species of penguin, confined to southern African waters.[Wikipedia]African penguins forage in the open sea, where they pursue pelagic fish such as pilchards and anchovies and marine invertebrates such as squid and small crustaceans. Penguins normally swim within 20 km of the shore. A penguin may consume up to 540 grams of prey every day, but this may increase to over 1 kg when raising older chicks.
They are really cute, aren't they ?
