Weekly Penguin

Weekly Penguin 482

This week's penguin is a special one; Meet Martin le Pingouin. Martin is a hand-crafted fellow from London, created by Marine Pacaut. Not only is Martin adorable, he also helps out real penguins in need; 20% of the sales of these guys goes to SANCCOB, the great penguin charity we've featured prominently here before.

Martin's entry might seem a bit more, well, 'photographic' than our usual fare. Well, as it happens, Martin is getting a spot at a Christmas market in London, so for the occasion Marine Pacaut asked if we could get photos of this fellow in a Finnish landscape. Me and Petja loved the idea, grabbed Martin with us and went location hunting. What you see here is Martin trying to blend into the local bird-life by sitting in a rowan tree.

We were also asked for a photograph with Martin posing with his new owner. Whilst I usually try to refrain from posting photos of myself, Petja's photography is so great it needs to be featured;
