Little penguin in New Zealand

Submitted by Jürgen Tenckhoff on Thu, 01/02/2020 - 15:03

We saw Little Penguins mostly in New Zealand. They came ashore in Omaru at nightfall and since we didn't want to puncture the shy animals with flashlights, some of these night shots of the little animals have a more "artistic" appearance. However, we were able to photograph some copies (behind glass) with the kind permission of the Cologne Zoo.
