Birdbrains

Penguin Parade 1

I've never been impressed by penguins' intelligence. After all, so many of them live in Antarctica. The king and gentoo species here do. If one of the caretakers stands squarely in front of them they just stop, oblivious to other directions. It would be exciting if one of them made a break for it.

I would have never supposed to find penguins among people like this, Bob.

superbe cette parade des pingouins, et voit que les enfants (et les parents) sont heureux.
Je voulais vous remercier, suite a la fin de la gréve de la poste d'Evry (ouf) j'ai eut le plaisir de recevoir votre cadeau NYC. Evidemment , vous remercierait Carolyn pour ce cadeau. Il m'a fait énormément plaisir. Je vais pouvoir frimer au réunion photo ;o))

What a treat to walk among penguins without having to go to Antartica.

LOL at the first two sentences of your commentary! In Patagonia I've visited a huge colony (other species) on the nesting season, it was amazing how close you could get before beeing hit by a angry mother. :-)

Great shots!

One of them is thinking, "where is that meddlesome flying rodent Batman?"

Somebody had to say it!

It doesn't seem right to be trotting them down an American street.
