Penguins Chasing a Butterfly (cute video)

These Humboldt Penguins at the Philadelphia Zoo have an easy life, but it can also be boring.

Here comes a little excitement. A butterfly. Most of the gang join in the chase, which, of course, is unsuccessful. The butterfly flies away.

Oh well, back in the water.

Poor dog! But he got it worked out, eventually, good for him.

good article

I think it is the right direction! Yes, McDonalds as a company is still not healthy for this planet …

I learned most of these through trial and error . . . oh, so many errors!
