Picture of the Month
Rockhopper Penguins (Eudyptes chrysocome) riding big surf, Falkland islands
I know that birds aren't supposed to be having fun, especially such hard-working, no-nonsense creatures as penguins.
But as large waves pounded the coast of the Falklands, returning Rockhoppers seemed all too happy to take
advantage of the surge to get in a little surfing.
