This is a Fiordland Crested Penguin, in Milford Sound New Zealand. I was in a kayak, and bouncing on the waves, the bird was bobbing and weaving on shore taking a bath - accounts for why this is not as sharp as I'd like...

There are two "V"'s in this pic.

He looks like he wants some privacy for his bath.

Great shot of an interesting bird. His "V" is striking. The one on the rock takes a little more looking, but is a nice touch.

So that's how you get close to these little varmints. I was there a few years ago and the tour operators dutifully kept us quite some distance away but then again we were on land.

Very good effort.

I like the little critter. I think he's cute! I see two V's in the photo and the markings on the rocks contain some other letters though less obvious.
