Extremely Rare Never-Before-Seen Yellow Penguin Captured By Photographer

Rare animals are... well, rare to come by. And this golden penguin is no exception! One wildlife photographer, Yves Adams, has won nature's lottery by being the first to spot and capture a never-before-seen yellow penguin. The penguin is a King penguin, potentially the very first of its kind. 

Yves Adams believes that the yellow penguin spotted on an island in South Georgia is leucistic. Leucism is a condition that results in the partial loss of pigmentation. Whereas albinism is the absence of melanin, leucism is only partial, which can make the animal have white or patchy colored skin, feathers, or hair. 

In an interview with the Independent, Yves Adams had this to say about the rare and unique moment he first spotted the yellow penguin, "I'd never seen or heard of a yellow penguin before. There were 120,000 birds on that beach, and this was the only yellow one there. They all looked normal except for this one. It really was something else. It was an incredibly unique experience. One of the birds looked really strange, and when I looked closer it was yellow. We all went crazy when we realized. We dropped all the safety equipment and grabbed our cameras."

Adams continued, "We were so lucky the bird landed right where we were. Our view wasn't blocked by a sea of massive animals. Normally it's almost impossible to move on this beach because of them all. It was heaven that he landed by us. If it had been 50 metres away, we wouldn't have been able to get this show of a lifetime."

This isn't the first time we've seen rare golden animals out in the wild, but it is the very first golden penguin!

Photographer Captures Portraits Of Pit Bulls in Flower Crowns To Help Save the Lives of These “Dangerous” Dogs

New York photographer Sophie Gamand, started the project Pit Bull Flower Power in 2014. She's been traveling around the United States taking pictures of pit bulls in shelters that are in need of adoption. As many are aware, the image of the pit bull has been tarnished by society, labeled as aggressive and hateful. And as a result of such labeling, they often end up abused, abandoned, and end up in shelters for the rest of their lives. 

Sophie's mission is to destroy that negative image of the pit bull but taking beautiful portraits of them in flower crowns. Flower crowns and a soft light to help soften their image and show the world the truth of their beauty and kindness. With each portrait, comes a story about the poor pup in need and she has completely changed their fate.

Thank you, Sophie Gamand!
