Life is full of dilemma’s. Like which composition is better: the large one or the cropped version below?
King penguins were my main goal at the Falklands, but they proved to be a hard subject to capture in an attractive way. Many of them are just standing with there eyes closed while incubating a precious single egg on their toes. And then there’s te size. King penguins are large birds and I had a hard time trying to find compositions that would work. Anyway, whilst trying to get a grip on the large numbers of photos I took in the two weeks of my stay on the Falkland Islands, I thought this one would be a nice starter. Taken at Volunteer point, where breeding is combined with a bit of courtship.
