King Penguin Studies Footprints

A young king penguin studies human shoe prints left by the photographer as he left sub-Antarctic South Georgia. What a great shot, especially considering the fact that photographer Robert Friel was only 11 years old when he captured this image in 2009!

He was highly commended in the One Earth category of the Veolia Environmental Wildlife photographer of the year competition. The One Earth category focuses on highlighting the interactions between humans and the natural world.

Wow,I hope you feel awesome every time you look at this picture you took. You captured a moment in time that gives so much to the average "joe" I can't stop smiling while I look at it. Thank you Robert Friel
