Humans love to line up in front of the glass walls at penguin zoo exhibits, staring at the antics of the black-and-white, two-legged creatures.

But what about when the tides are turned, when penguins get a chance to meet the strange humans,  observing them for the first time?

That moment was captured on camera by a man traveling to penguins' home habitat, Antarctica.

"I was on a tour with friends in Antarctica when we visited a penguin colony," the visitor, Joel Oleson, explained.  "Our guide told us not to approach the penguins, but that it was okay for them to approach us."

"I laid down to seem non- threatening, and the baby penguin approached me," said Oleson, a self-described "travel junkie" who has traveled  to over 100 countries since 2008 and blogs about his adventures at Travelingepic.com.  Watch the video to see what happened next.
