White Run

A gentoo penguin stands in profile at the top of a snowy slope, holding its flippers by its sides and thrusting its head forward. It has a white chest, black and white head and red beak, but everything is blurred by a fierce blizzard. Shot with a Sony a1, a 400mm lens and a 1.4x teleconverter on Danco Island off the Antarctic Peninsula in December 2021. ISO 640, 560mm, f/4, 1/2000
