Default Things with wings - little penguin

Hello all

Here are a set of wings that don't fly, but they SWIM well!

Taken on Granite Island, Victor Harbour, about an hour south of Adelaide, South Australia.

cheers.

That's a friendly looking bird. Good reminder that not all wings are used for flying in the air. These guys are graet with their wings underwater.

Thanks all for your kind comments. Glad to share this with you.

Bernice, yes I've seen the evening parade a few times, as I've been to Victor Harbor many times - it's great!!
