Alexander von Humboldt discovered this bird? A fascinating close-up!
Bill Phillips: He spent a lot of time in South america so although I don't know if he discovered them they may have been named after him. They are on the endangered list of species

I did not know it was already that cold in Droitwich that penguins are walking the streets, Bill??
Bill Phillips: These are south american penguins and used to the heat grin

A lovely image Bill.
Bill Phillips: Pleased you think so Anne
I think Penguins are cute little characters. That advery goes back some years, Is till enjoy eating a Penguin as much as I did back then.
Bill Phillips: I have always liked penguins. Haven't eaten a penguin biscuit in years. They are tiny now!

i like this close up, Bill. i believe i am seeing that pink zone around the beak for the first time.
Bill Phillips: It isn't obvious when the waddle past Ayush
Nice portrait with the tilt.

The Humboldt would be well adapted to the searing heat of England.
Bill Phillips: They come from south america so I suppose not too much different from here
At F6.3 this should be sharp, your focus on the eye is off..Youneed to go to
Spec savers.
Bill Phillips: This is a severe crop of the original which shutterchance has not done any favours to. I have just looked at the original and blown it up and it is actually pretty sharp.
