Your morning adorable: One giant leap for a penguin in Antarctica
"Who says penguins can't fly?" submitter kkcondon wonders -- and after seeing this great shot, we're beginning to wonder the same thing. We know penguins are unable to fly (despite what the BBC may have told us on a recent April Fool's Day), but this one sure does seem to be getting some hang time!
Antarctica's Cuverville Island, where kkcondon captured this photo, is home to a large colony of gentoo penguins like this fellow. Gentoos are distinguishable by the white, crownlike markings atop their heads and by their vividly colored beaks.
