The Perfect Spot

This pair of Gentoo penguins seem to have found the perfect patch of earth on Barrientos Island to start building their nest. Shortly after this picture was taken, one penguin, presumably the male, began building their nest out of pebbles from the surrounding area while his mate headed out to sea to feed.
