Yellow-eyed penguin, on his way from the water to the nest up in the small forest.

Beautiful, like it very much! I do envy you- the NZ subantarctic islands are another dream of mine.... I'll come back and have a more thorough look after the weekend. Greetings, Gudrun

Thank you very much Gudrun. If you have the possibility, go to the NZ subantarctic (but take South Georgia first :-)). The photo also shows a little bit of the surroundings, with megaherbs unqiue for the NZ subantarctic islands, and I think it is a pity that Google Earth does not accept such photos. Welcome back. Greetings, Mats.

I too think it's a pity that animal or plant photos are rarely accepted. Every now and then I can't resist uploading such photos because they are just as representative of an area as the broad landscapes. Yours is a perfect example- the rare penguin and the typical vegetation!

Yes, my priorities are: get a better camera and better lenses, save a lot of money, go to South Georgia, save more money, ......;-)

Cheers, Gudrun
