Expeditioner Eddie Gault of the Australian Antarctic Division left his camera on the ground near a large emperor penguin colony at the Auster Rookery and a couple of the birds put it to good use this week.
Of course it’s not a true selfie as the penguins just wandered up to the camera, but it is amusing. The clip has been shared thousands of times from the group’s Facebook page.
