Rockhopper Shower

Rockhopper Shower, Saunders Island, Falkland IslandsAfter a long day at sea, rockhopper penguins appreciate a good shower. The competition at this particular shower spot on Saunders Island in the Falklands can get quite intense. For the moment, this rockhopper has won water rights, but those others waiting in line won’t remain patient for long.
