Barbed barrier


By moving very slowly and crawling, I was able to get very close to this Yellow-eyed Penguin as it tried to find a way through the barbed wire fence. The fence prevents livestock from entering and damaging a small breeding reserve for the Penguins, but it is also an obstacle for them.
