Aquarium of the Pacific (Long Beach, California, USA)
One of the two Magellanic Penguin chicks born to parents Roxy and Floyd in the June Keyes Penguin Habitat at the aquarium. This photo was taken when it was less than 4 months old, and it was on its daily meet-and-greet show. The cart was surrounded by twenty or thirty children, who only gave me enough time to snap this shot before kicking me to the back of the crowd. Yes, the chick was POPULAR!
