King Penguin colony, Falkland Islands

King Penguin colony

I stopped down my 200 mm lens to f/18 to get enough depth of field to create this abstract of adult King Penguins gathered at this large colony.

Fortunately they are not fast movers, so the 1/160 sec shutter speed was sufficient. I think that the Kings are the most beautiful of the penguins, with their elegant mix of orange, black, gray, and white.
