Gentoo Penguin and chick
Saunders Island, Falkland Islands   –   January 10, 2013
Canon EOS 7D   *   EF500mm f/4L IS USM +1.4x   *   ISO 320   *   1/500 sec @ f/10

The perpetually hungry Gentoo chicks raise their bills to their parent's to beg for food, which they parent may regurgitate for them. This pair is silhouetted by the setting sun.

You need to walk around and be aware of the sky and foreground to create this sort of image.
