    Penguin Attacks Camera

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     pipedog says 'When visiting Boulder Beach to see the penguins, I didn't realize I would have the opportunity to encounter them as closely as I did. We both seemed to share a genuine curiosity about one another. As I ran around the boulders, the penguins quickly followed me. By the time I shot the video, I felt at ease with my new found friends. To my surprise, I quickly learned, they like their personal space as we do. Although neither I or the penguins were harmed in the making of the video, the camera on the other hand, faced a different story.'
    - elchueco, CNN iReport producer

    Boulder Beach in Cape Town, South Africa is home to over 2,000 African penguins.  While playing a little game of hide and seek with them, one decided to attack my camera.
