Penguins are cute flightless birds to watch as the waddle on dry land. This Yellow Eyed Penguin, a species native to New Zealand, has just walked from the shores of the Pacific Ocean to a bush clad hill where its nest is.

Penguins tend to waddle when they're walking and trip frequently on slippery rocks but in the water they move effortlessly darting about in search of food.
