This is the first time that the rare yellow penguin has been photographed.
According to the Independent, Belgian wildlife photographer Yves Adams took this photo on a small island in South Georgia in December 2019 during a two-month expedition. However, he posted the photo on Instagram earlier this month.
“While unpacking our rubberboats merely after landing on a remote beach on the island of South-Georgia, this leucistic King penguin walked up straight to our direction in the middle of a chaos full of Sea elephants and Antarctic fur seals, and thousands of other King penguins,” Adams wrote in his post. “How lucky could I be!”
