I never expected to see these little penguin sculptures/statues on a wall outside a church in the centre of Dundee, but I’m glad I did because despite the torrential rain and grey skies they made me smile!

These little fellows crop up all over Dundee and not just the one place. Keep the kids interested by making it a competition to spot them

Just keep your eyes peeled and there they are! Someone was having a picnic lunch which spoiled my photo (!) but I came back later and they were gone!

The lovely penguins take you by surprise, spread along the wall in front of the church. They are charming and provide yet another opportunity for a fun photograph.

I knew they were in the centre of town somewhere but it was fun to bump into them whilst walking down the Nethergate. I think I enjoyed these little guys more than their larger cousins in front of the discovery centre.

Cracking piece of modern sculpture a bit of fun for all the family. Phograph it from the right angle and it' like a Penguin Parade.

This thing is so funny and it looks fantastic. The penguins are on a great angle which makes them funny. Worth to have a look at.

I love fun statues, and what is more fun than penguins!! Take a photo or add your own penguin pose and join in with the penguin fun.

A nice wee photo opportunity with the penguin statues. We visited during the University graduation week and the penguins were suitably attired.
