Penguin emerging

Also from Penguin Place outside Dunedin, we were in a hide down near the beach and were lucky enough to see a penguin coming out of the sea after a fishing trip. It came out a little way then stood sunning itself. The wings are raised to expose as much surface area to the sun as possible. It later headed in to the dunes to its nest and chick.
