Penguin

Galapagos Penguin (Spheniscus mendiculus) sunning it self, taken in the Galapagos. Pretty nifty that near the equator, a group of polar associated animals is living comfortably. This has to do with the cold water and increased  foodweb productivity caused by the Humboldt eastern boundary current and its divergence due to geostrophic flow. Planetary dynamics are rad. Also I republished this image on  Penguin Awareness day, also rad.
