Wow that Emperor Penguin shot is cool. Must've been an awesome trip.
Thanks! Those are actually King Penguins, and both penguin species look similar to each other but the Emperors are taller.
Here is another shot of a huge, really huge king penguin colony with tons of chicks (the ones in brown, fluffy feathers). I took a lot of detailed shots but alas not using this lens .
interesting, I had forgotten the King even existed, once upon a time I used to know that (although it probably would've been hard to tell from those photos even if I had still remembered)
cool, huge colony alright
speaking of detail shots with this lens, someone on DP was asking if it would make an ideal wildlife lens for getting close shots.... said he wanted to get a nat geo prize winning photo and wanted the really close up look and planned to use it to get shots of....
7' monitor lizards
since they would be slow enough to easily approach and he could sneak up on the crocs by walking through riverside reeds and vegetation and such....
unless he takes our advice that may be the last photo contest he ever enters.... i just hope we got across to him: NO NOO NOOOOO NOO and NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! and even if he uses a long lens, he has to hire on a local wildlife guide if you are going to deal with those sorts of animals, trying to walk around on foot and get shots as close as you can
