NEWCOMB BAY, Antarctica — A cute little surprise visitor was curious about what some Antarctic expeditioners were up to this week.
When a #penguin drops in to check on your work.

Matt McKay was shooting video when the penguin flew up out of the water and onto the boat.
McKay is part of a team of Australian Antarctic Program expeditioners working at Casey Research Station.
“They were out in small boats in Newcomb Bay collecting water samples for a research project. Over the course of the day they had eight curious penguins drop in to check out their work,” a spokesman for the Australian Antarctic Program said.
