This picture was taken using an Olympus OM D Mark III and Lumix 14-140mm lens. It shows two Gentoo penguins on rocky outcrop in Wilhelmina Bay on the Antarctic Peninsula. In the background a steep glacier. Penquins have a tough life and while they appear relaxed, they are on constant guard against predators.
