The ultimate penguin selfie captured in Antarctica

It’s not exactly Sunset Boulevard.

But these emperor penguins are dressed to the nines and might as well be saying, “All right, MrDeMilleI’m ready for my closeup.”

The curious birds were captured on film at the Auster Rookery near Australia’s Mawson research station and shared by the Australian Antarctic Program.

“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,” the organization explained.

This is pretty much everything we love about penguins.
