How neat to see them in a natural habitat. I never thought about them biting!

What a wonderful pic that is for him to have! I never thought that they would bite either.

I cannot imagine how thrilling it would be to have penguins on the beach with me. What a treat. That little one in the first shot is so cute. And the sign....I did not have a clue they would bite. That is an important sign for folk like me. genie

Something so cute bites? Seriously? Maybe they "peck" more than they would bite!

How exciting for your son to be so close to them on the beach!

They are too cute. I love that last shot.

Andreas appears enchanted! I hope he was. Is R500 very much, cf say the USD?

I am always amazed at your images from all over the world, enriching our theme day!

I'm sure with those beaks they could do some real damage.

Wonderful images and so different from what I am used to seeing here. That's the fabulous thing about these memes, and getting to see life from different parts of the world.

Some pretty designs alright. Doing the painting yourselves is more fun but a good place for ideas for more design is this site of wahooart.com, that I use to help with my wall decorations.
You can browse for a painting like this The tree, by 20th century Czech artist, Frantisek Kupka, for example, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LHUQV , that can be ordered on line and delivered to you.
