Expeditions to the Antarctica are constantly filled with surprises since it is such a distant territory that still offers a whole lot of even more uncharted land.
Australian Eddie Gault traveled there on an excursion and brought his camera so he could shoot pictures of the penguin colonies. He even managed to capture a picture of penguins taking a selfie among these amazing photos he was able to capture. While in Auster Rookery, Gault planned to take pictures of a group of Emperor penguins and kept his camera nearby to document their daily activities. After leaving his camera there, one of the penguins approached it, and as seen in the picture, the bird knocked the camera over and unintentionally snapped a selfie with the other penguins.
If you don’t know much about Emperor penguins, they are the largest species of penguins and can grow to be 45 inches tall on average. They are also utilized to survive in extreme environments, such the Antarctic weather, and have a lifespan of up to twenty years. Emperor penguins breed in the winter, when females deposit their eggs and leave the male penguins to take care of them. Emperor penguins live in colonies.
There is a ton of video filmed at Auster Rookery online if you want to learn more about Emperor penguins.
