This photo was taken at Maxwell Bay during January 2017. While we vertically deployed an oceanographic instrument at Maxwell Bay, several Gentoo penguins (Pygoscelis papua) were swimming towards our small boat and I was lucky enough to capture the beautiful moment when a penguin was flying out of the water.
