Thank you, Dale! #9606510

I marvel at the detail of each feather in this photo. I doubt that I have ever seen a penguin this close. Your shallow depth of field perfectly frames the subject for best display.

Excellent work Laura. #9610007

Hello Laura: The bold detail and attentive eyes makes you feel welcome to his world. The framing and background enhance a very well done image. #9616701

Irene and Merna, Thank you very much. I was stunned at how still he remained but kept that eye right on me! #9639539
