Today’s Renee of Sunshine is too good not to share. It is about a photo of two Fairy penguins looking at the lights of Melbourne, Australia.

The one penguin has its wing around the other.  It is a sweet photo…the back story is even more touching  Both penguins lost their mates. The smaller gray penguin is an older female widow and the larger darker penguin is a younger male widower. They are often seen in what appears to be comforting each other.  They do this on a regular basis. #compasion

The photographer spent a few nights with the penguin colony before he was able to get that image.

It is such a special image that has won the Community Choice Award in Oceanographic magazine’s Ocean Photography Awards 2020.
