Hello there, stranger!

When photographer Jen Fu Cheng of New Jersey visited Antarctica's Paulet Island, he encountered many of its 500,000 penguins. But there was one in particular that stood out – right in his face!

"This penguin was curious because I was sitting on a rock about 15 feet away and he came over to investigate me," Cheng said. "He came over, looked into my camera and walked away when he became bored of me."
