Another non-penguin from the penguin pool. (The penguins were either hiding from the heat in the deep shade or rocketing about under a couple of metres of water; either circumstances made them excessively challenging photographic subjects.)
The DA200 has its limitations, but down-sun it's really quite splendid.

To keep the penguins company, there are a bunch of other austral waterfowl, including some Great White Pelicans.

In respect of their crepuscular nature, the enclosure is dim, draped with frondy, trailing vegetation, backlit (windows to daylight), and coated all over with dimming film (with bubbles, which means there are strange diffracted colours every where in the background of the original image), which means that the above image, pulled out of the perceptually much dimmer RAW camera image, represents more detail than I've ever seen in there with bare eyes.
So, yeah, technically dubious picture, but I'm happy about it.
