Penguin jumps from freezing water onto ice slab while playing with friends
A penguin has jumped from the freezing ocean onto a floating slab of ice while playing with friends.
Jonas Beyer, from Greenland, was photographing the group of penguins just outside Port Lockroy, Antarctica Peninsula.
He was on a cruise ship when he spotted the adorable moment a penguin jumped out of the water to be with two Gentoo Penguins that were already stood on the piece of ice.
Jonas added: “I saw the penguins were playing on the piece of ice, jumping up and down, so I myself as low as I could and waited for the time when they came out of the water, super unpredictable since there is no warning before the shoot through the surface.
“I feel lucky to be so close and experience animals in the wild.”
