The golden penguin sees your soul.
Nature Photographer Captures Images Of ‘Never Before Seen’ Leucistic Penguin

These are several shots captured by Belgian nature photographer Yves Adams in the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands of a rare leucistic king penguin. Leucism is similar to albinism, but results in only a partial reduction in melanin and other pigments, not total. There are a few more shots of the handsome devil below, including one of him hanging out with a friend on the beach. There’s also a picture of the colony that Mellow Yellow belongs to, although I don’t think he’s actually in that photo, but don’t let that stop you from telling a friend or family member it’s like Where’s Waldo? and seeing how long you can get them to search before elbowing you in the nuts. My girlfriend went three minutes.

    I don’t trust penguins, let alone ‘never before seen’ penguins.
