Penguins Anyone?

While driving the outer banks of the Otago Peninsula in Dunedin last night, we happened to see a little critter crossing the road in front of us. Sure enough, it turned out to be a Blue Penguin (the world's smallest penguin and a native of New Zealand).After following a windy road down towards the shore, we came across a whole colony of blue penguins.

We were able to see them as they walked in front of the car, and in some cases we caught a few in the brush just along side of the road. This made photographing them very easy. I believe it is a general rule to not use bright flashes and such while photographing them, so we were lucky to find them walking across our light path! You can find them in the Blue Penguin Colony section
