San Francisco Zoo: Pair of Preening Penguins

San Francisco Zoo: Pair of Preening Penguins
What a wonderful time I had watching the penguins at the zoo! They have a long island with a large moat and pond area all around it. People get an unobstructed view, and the penguins have a great place to swim, play, and enjoy themselves. Their island has lots of caves to sleep in, and it was really fun watching them waddle in and out of their houses! :) Naturally, watching them swim, play, and preen was mesmerizing to me, and I had a hard time pulling myself away. Such happy birds, they were all content and relaxed, without any worries whatsoever.

Here is one of the many pictures I got of them preening in the water. They rolled over and over in the water, shook their feathers and sprayed water everywhere, and preened each other too. They are so cute!!! :)
