    Humboldt penguins chasing a butterfly at the Philadelphia Zoo


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     martymcg says the penguins were just hanging out and swimming until they saw the butterfly. "It seemed to break the monotony of the penguin day," he said.
    - davidw, CNN iReport producer

    Several Humboldt penguins decided it was time to chase a butterfly at the Philadelphia Zoo on 8/15/10. It was really cute, even though I'm sure the butterfly wasn't too thrilled with the situation.  We had a wonderful day at the zoo!




    Be sure to also see my followup video: "Feeding the Penguins who chased a butterfly"

    The Philadelphia Zoo invited us back to meet the penguins up close and feed them!
