Instagram Blogger Takes Selfie - Doesn't Realise Penguins Are Bonking In Background
For Instagrammers, taking selfies is their bread and butter.
Steph Elswood - who has 237,000 followers on Instagram - was hoping to capture a picture of herself with two penguins at Boulders Beach Penguin Colony in Cape Town, and in this respect, she was successful.
However, it was only later that she realised the pair were playing a game of pile up as she took the selfie.
Sharing the picture on the gram, Steph seemed pretty pleased with her first foray into 'penguin porn'.
She said: "OK so this is my favourite selfie of all time... but please swipe to the next picture.
"I was there for about 10 minutes trying to get a good pic next to my new pals Penny and Guin and THEY WERE HAVING SEX THE WHOLE TIME!!!!!!! I was being too self-absorbed to notice!!! HAHAHA OOPS."
Unfortunately though, it looks like she won't be shooting anymore penguin porn anytime soon, as she later learned that tourists should keep their distance from the animals at the beach.
Btw if you look really closely at the selfie you'll see the penguins having sex and realise that I'm just there chilling and blissfully unaware that I'm ruining a moment fml x https://t.co/i81FaQISyN

She said: "PS. I have just been informed that the penguins on Boulders Beach are under a lot of stress due to tourists trying to get too close. I feel guilty that I contributed to that and thought that because they weren't reacting when I got close that they weren't bothered by me.
"If you are considering visiting this spot, then please be mindful and ask guards for appropriate distances because no one told us any of the rules I've been messaged about since posting this. I will definitely learn from this for the future and I'm sorry to anyone affected by this post."
So remember people, always check if you can approach a penguin before approaching a penguin - and always check they're not bonking before taking a selfie.
