These images were taken by Canadian wildlife Chantelle Stobbe, 34, who travelled to the Falkland Islands to snap the beautiful flightless birds in the wild.
Bluff Cove Lagoon is a popular wildlife hot-spot and is home to thousands of Gentoo and King Penguins.
Getting up-close and personal with the animals proved to be an incredible experience for Chantelle.
She said: “The adult penguins paid no attention to the people trying to capture photos of them, but the young ones were very, very curious.
“I took out my GoPro and placed it near the ground and almost instantly a young Gentoo Penguin came to investigate.
“He had no fear of me at all. He just kept coming closer and closer, slowly inch by inch, to check it out.
“It was a fantastic day, I had a huge grin plastered on my face the whole time. How many people can say they've hung out with penguins, and even gotten a selfie with them?”
But despite the approachable nature of some of the penguins, Chantelle had to resist the temptation to touch the birds.
She said: “We were told not to go near the penguins, but if they approach us, that is ok, but not to pet them.
“These penguins are 100% wild and the Falkland Islands wants to keep it that way. But it was so hard to resist reaching out and rubbing their fuzzy bellies.”
