Penguins grooming at the Two Oceans Aquarium – Flickr pic of the day


This picture capturing a magical moment between two rockhopper penguins was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Dominic Goudie aka kikujiro san.

Dominic says, “I took the pictures during a short visit to Cape Town in 2008 for my brother’s wedding in Constantia.

“As someone fairly new to photography, I found Cape Town a wonderful and inspirational location for taking pictures. At every turn I found interesting images to capture.

“I visited Cape Town’s excellent Aquarium on my first day and whilst looking at the various penguins, I got lucky and captured one of my favourite shots showing the two grooming.”

With over 3000 marine creatures on view – including sharks, turtles and penguins – the Two Oceans Aquarium is one of the finest aquariums in the world. This picture was taken in the Sappi River Meander: This exciting exhibit traces the journey of a typical Western Cape river from its mouth at the ocean to its origins as a stream high up in the mountains. Here, visitors can view the colony of penguins up close, as they hang out in their natural habitat.

Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
