A King Penguin takes a stroll on a Penguin Walk at the Calgary Zoo at a recent photo walk. The penguins are taken out on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11:00 AM, weather permitting. The penguins only walk on days that are above –25c and below +10c. They are walking to raise money to help support penguins in the wild.
I pretty much stayed with my 70-200mm f/2.8 the whole day at the zoo, wanting to reduce background clutter. On the Penguin Walk, the tough thing is to try to get yourself situated where you have a good view and a background that you can deal with. You can get quite close to the birds, but no touching.
In the best light…
