Photo Friday: Another Penguin in Grass

Southern Chile, 2009. “Hear the cry of my people!”

(Other possible captions include: “Sparta!”, “Khan!” or “Wheaton!” (a la Sheldon in BBT), among others.)

The reality of the image, though, that I wasn’t able to catch with the camera (at least, in this shot…) was that there was another bird – non-penguin – in proximity, so we wondered at the time if what we were hearing was the equivalent of a warning, or a penguin battle cry. (I admit, battle cry sounds cooler.)
