I love the Kingfishers Joan! Thank you!

Thanks for the gallery link.

Kaza, New African Protected Area Gallery

Kingfishers

Thanks Steph!

Cool Tony!  I did not know that!  I love penguins too.  So fun to watch at the zoo or on t.v., not in their natural habitat!

Thank you Tony - love the penguin story and the information you gave us.

I have the movie "March of the Penguins". Anyone here see it?

It's great!
