Photograph by @thomaspeschak A juvenile King Penguin on sub-Antarctic Marion Island investigates my camera. I left it on the ground for less than a minute before multiple youngsters came in at close range to investigate. Shot on assignment for @natgeo magazine on expedition with the South African Antarctic Program and the SA Department of Environmental Affairs. You can #followme @thomaspeschak for more photos from this rarely visited southern ocean island sanctuary.-natgeo (Instagram)
