Pictured here is an image of a curious penguin. It’s one that swam over to introduce itself to me when I visited ZSL London Zoo with my daughter Izzy.
I believe it is a Humboldt penguin because of the spots you can just see on its chest, something specific to this particular breed. I never expected to take an image with quite this much detail so I was very happy when I saw the result.
The picture was taken in burst mode through the glass of the penguin pool. I had to use this mode as lots of penguins were in the water and swimming over to me and into the frame so I had to be quick. If you want the hardcore details, here they are; focal length was 27mm, aperture f4, ISO 640 and shutter speed 1/400 sec.
The image was taken yesterday. I will be writing more about my trip to the zoo over the next few days as I was a the #GenerationGraco event, trying out a number of Graco’s baby and toddler products. As I say though, more about that in a few days!
