A photographer's recent snaps of a cheeky iceberg have delighted social media users... and it's not hard to see why.

As reported by news.com.au, Canadian drone photographer Ken Pretty recently took to social media to share a series of stunning photographs captured off the coast of Newfoundland.

The Dildo resident (that sounds like a joke, but I promise it is a real town) recently told CBC News that his humorous snaps were captured on Thursday (April 27) at Harbour Grace, and have garnered quite a response from fellow Facebook users.

"I'm gettin' a lot of response, a lot of reaction to the photo because of its resemblance to... part of the male anatomy, say," Pretty said.

Pretty said that he knew the iceberg - nicknamed the "dickie berg" - had the potential to go viral online, and after sharing the snaps on Facebook, they have since been shared over 5,000 times.

He even captioned one of the images: "Guess I will get a few comments on this one".

And the response in the comments section has been just as hilarious as the actual photos, with one person commenting: "Judging by the photo, it can't too cold out."

A second quipped: "New definition of blue balls".

"Tourism should rise now," a third added, with a fourth joking: "Now if that ain’t the tip of the iceberg I don’t know what is."

Although the berg has brought a lot of joy to social media users, Pretty says that he was lucky to capture the shots, due to the fact that it is melting so quickly.

CBC reported on Friday that data from the Canadian Ice Service data is currently showing over 200 icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland - with dozens more seen off the coast of Labrador.

Diane Davis - who runs a Facebook group for keen iceberg hunters in the area - told CBC: "Onshore winds brought in both the pack ice and the bergs. If the trend holds up, we should see them for May and June, too.

"Mother Nature only gave us a handful last year."

Nevertheless, it just goes to show you; there are still a lot of things that can make us smile on social media - it's not all doom and gloom. Thanks for spreading some much-needed joy, Ken!
