But Dad, One of Them Did It!

The picture reminds me of a human dad and mom resignedly looking on while one of their kids protests, “But Dad, one of them did it!” I've been there. These are adult King Penguins molting and their chicks (in brown) at a 200,000 penguin colony on South Georgia Island in the sub-Antarctic.
