Checking for sharks

Watching the penguins in the pool enclosure at SAMREC (South African Marine Rehabilitation and Education Centre) at Cape Recife can be very interesting and often makes for great photos.  This youngster was sitting in the sun on the rocks and decided to dive into the water.  As he got to the edge of the rock he leaned forward for a look before taking the plunge.  I noticed that they all did it before diving.  Perhaps just making sure there aren't any sharks lurking in the deep. 


  1. Maybe thinking............ Must I jump into this??

  2. Or... I really need to learn to fly. Water is cold

  3. Could be life saving to look before you leap.
