Readers’ wildlife photos

I think we’ll continue with evolutionary biologist John Avise’s Antarctic-region photos until they’re exhausted, which will be a few more days. The rest of them are penguins, which of course I feature with great joy. We’ll have one species each day. John’s captions are indented.

    Good to know they have a sense of morality.
