"I Like You, Too"

To walk amongst penguins was a real highlight of my life. Here you see a pair of courting African penguins (Spheniscus demersus). Taken at Boulders Beach, Simon's Town, South Africa, Africa. The bird is also known as the Black-footed penguin or the Jackass penguin. The species is listed as endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species at iucnredlist.org.
