entered the Aquarium I saw I was just in time for the penguin
feeding. The lighting and the speed of the penguins made them
hard to photograph. This is one of the better photos, accompanied
by a video clip of a post-feeding wiggle.
young female zoologist told us penguin facts while we watched
them chow down. We had to be one of the toughest crowds in
the history of speaker/audience. I did catch one great point
you ever think of penguins as camoflagued? They are! It's
called countershading. Predators from the sky can't see penguins
while they are swimming, because the water is dark and their
backs are dark. Predators below them in the water can't see
them because when they look up they see the sky more than
the penguin's white belly.
