A photographer was attempting to take pictures of a beautiful glacier in Neko Harbour, Antarctica, when he was interrupted by a once-a-lifetime opportunity. The opportunity has two wings, an adorable waddle, and the desire to be an internet sensation. Meet the Neko Harbour Penguins.
The penguins spotted the photographer from a distance.
Or was it the other way round?
But they didn't run away.......
Instead they came closer for a visit.
I'm ready for a close-up!
Who knew penguins could be so photogenic?
These little feathered fellows in particular
are the Gentoo Penguins.
They are native to Antarctica and the surrounding areas.
They can be easily identified by the white
"bonnet" that goes across their heads.....
and their adorableness.
The Gentoo Penguins have many predators in the water, such as sea-lions, leopard seals, and orca-the killer whales. On land they have no predators, making them eager to pose for photo shoots when they see passing photographers. What an incredible experience in the wilds of Antarctica. Let's share it!
