Tuxedo birds

Adelie Penguin

To me Adelie Penguins are the cutest of all. Pure black and white, with a blue-white circle around their eye they really look like a waiter in a fancy restaurant. Somehow I expect them to be in a white environment, even though I know they will only start to breed when the snow has melted. That makes this picture a bit strange to me; an Adelie Penguin against a relatively warm coloured rocky background. Apparently he wanted something different as the others. Maybe an even more fancy restaurant?
