Penguin selfie offers bird’s eye view

  • Published on Mar 8, 2018
  • Curious Emperor penguins have been captured in Antarctica getting up close and personal on film.
    The vision was filmed at the Auster Rookery near Australia’s Mawson research station
    Australian Antarctic expeditioner, Eddie Gault, left the camera on the ice when visiting the rookery, and it didn’t take long for the naturally curious birds to seize the opportunity for a selfie.

    OMGosh I LOVE this! Lol. 'Heard about it on the evening news and had to look it up. It's precious!! It's awesome to not only see them checking it out, but to hear and see them communicating about it is an extra treat indeed! So many possible human dialogues went through my brain as I enjoyed this over and over a few times, lol. Best to leave it be I guess and let others have their own experience, hahaha. =D
    Bravo on this capture - truly priceless gem indeed and thank you so much for sharing it!! =)♥
