Snap up a Penguin..

25th April 2017

Cheer up fella lift your head up... as today is World Penguin Day 2017. So a great excuse for getting away with posting photos of the cute flightless aquatic birds in blogs and on social media - using the hash tag #worldpenguinday.
On a more serious point is that while some species of penguin flourish, others are dwindling because of changes to their natural habitat. Today April 25 – coincides with the annual northward migration of penguins. Today's aim is to raise awareness of the plight of penguins and the importance of protecting marine environment. I took this photo at Boulders Beach near Simon's Town South Africa - the technical challenge was - with a very hot mid-day sun - having to cope with bright high contrasting light in an attempt to capture the penguin's detail.
