Photograph of a King penguin standing amongst clumps of grass.
Hurley’s fascination with texture and interest in the wildlife around him is clearly shown in this photograph of a young King penguin. Its fur-like plumage and the softness of its coat contrast with the spikiness of the grasses surrounding it.
