Picture of the day: If Your Pictures Aren’t Good Enough, You’re Not Close Enough

That is a quote from the famous war photographer Robert Capa, and as a lover of natural photographer I enjoy the usage of long telezoom lenses. But sometimes it just do not work. The shot of the day is from the Falkland Islands, and we where visiting a Rockhopper penguin colony, and the penguins where very close. So I got my fish eye lens out, and lie down on the ground. The rockhoppers was intrigued, and they came up close. So I guess this image is shot at a distance of between 5-10 cm. Good fun.
