Penguin Seduction

GoPro HD Hero camera + fuzzy hat “decoy” + curious penguin =

He got especially involved when I started building a pebble nest for the camera.  Male Adelie penguins woo the ladies by bringing pebbles for their nests… this one started picking up the pebbles close to the camera with his beak, and plopping them about two feet farther away.  I’m not sure whether he was trying to seduce the camera or trying to hoard the good pebbles for himself.
