"Gentoo Penguin flying through the air while swimming"

Hi,

Here's a Gentoo Penguin flying through the air while swimming in Cierva Cove, located at the far northern end of Hughes Bay, at the northern end of the Gerlache Strait, Antarctica.

Gentoo's belong to the family of "Brush-tailed" penguins (Pygoscelis). They are the largest of the family, reaching a length of 20–36 inches (51 to 90cm) as adults. The Gentoo Penguin is easily recognized by the wide white stripe extending like a bonnet across the top of its head and its bright orange-red bill.

Thanks Jon. That photograph was made possible in large part due to the power of the Nikon D4. I was shooting at 10fps to get that.
