Penguins Marching

I took this sequence of photos last year when I visited the Taipei Zoo in Taiwan. I thought the wintry scene and the penguins' message is appropriate as the year comes to a close.

Penguins in their frosty setting:

On the march, one penguin:

Two penguins:Three penguins:What did you say?

Hey, stop! He says we are going the wrong way!

Four penguins, finally headed the right direction:

May joy and peace fill your heart in this special season, and may you be accompanied by loved ones as you head into 2013. May you always have a spirit of adventure, but if you are going the wrong direction, I hope someone will tell you!

Christmas blessings and best wishes for the New Year,  Deborah

Those penguins are adorable! I think it's their feet that make their walk so funny. Glad to know they got turned around! ;) Have a very Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas, Deb. Your penguins look so seasonal. We have little ones up here at our aquarium, but these are really cute.
