Dena Communes with Penguin

Dena is sitting on a whale bone vertebrae (from circa 1920's) chatting and communing with a molting Gentoo penguin. This 3 week affair where they molt or change all their feathers is very energy intensive. They cannot go into the water or feed during this time. They basically just stand there while it occurs. Dena sat there for about 20 minutes, her watching him and him watching her. They definitely bonded.
