An Incredible Encounter with a Friendly Penguin in Antarctica

Imagine that you're on vacation and trying to snap a picture of a glacier in beautiful Neko Harbor, Antarctica, but you're interrupted by someone who wants you to photograph them instead. Ordinarily, this would be pretty obnoxious. But what if that someone was a cute penguin? It wouldn't be annoying, it'd be adorable! This actually happened to Reddit user land_of_ice during their trip to the frozen Antarctic and resulted in some once-and-a-lifetime images.

We see a special penguin spot land_of_ice from a distance and waddle towards the camera. It stops in front of the photographer and strikes a pose, clearly unafraid of human presence. The penguin stands still long enough for the Reddit user to capture several shots of the photogenic creature.

This particular penguin is of the Gentoo species, and it can be easily identified by the white "bonnet" across its head. Although the Gentoo have many predators in the water such as sea lions and orca whales, they have no enemies on land. It makes them eager to greet a stranger during a visit to this incredible place.
