Vying for Attention

Uploaded: March 07, 2020 | Entered: March 07, 2020 00:00:00


Taken in a penguin colony with a lot of females waiting for their eggs to hatch. Every so often the female would stand up and show off the egg, with another one behind hidden from view. The male was often calling loudly as if to say "Look over here!" Animal behaviour is so interesting to observe.
