Last Saturday

Jahleel assumes defensive velociraptor pose
You can see her mate's beak sticking out of their nestbox on the left there.

Jahleel moves closer...

And closer...

And closer...until she bites me on the left hand almost making me drop the camera.

Foolishly, I thought Jahleel was coming closer to check out my camera. One of the other penguins, Agulhas, does this all the time, but she wasn't. She was merely defending her house where her mate, Robben, was nesting in.
