Penguin poor little thing

I promised you pictures of penguins from around here. Here is one, it's pretty much dead but it still is a penguin. It was floating around the harbor where I guided Nicke and Lisa. Poor little thing.

commentHere's a little story of the Penguin that COULD:
Once upon a time there was a colony of penguins, that lived in a freezing hellhole called the south pole. All of the penguins longed for soaking in the sun on a nice beach on NZ, but they all just concluded that they had no chance of flying there, and no one wanted to swim that far in that freezing water.
But then there was one brave (read dumbass) little penguin that stretched out his wings, and said "I CAN fly!" (Jag kan flyga, jag är inte rädd :P). And so he started flapping his little wings as fast as he could all days long, and after a month he had gotten so thin, and the wings were so exercised that he finally managed to take off. Now he said to himself "I CAN go all the way to NZ", and so he started heading north.
Unfortunately he only got 1 Km before he got tired, fell and crashlanded in the sea, and died. But even in death, his spirit lived on. And so one day he finally floated - moldy and bloated - ashore in NZ...
