White Penguin, Antarctica

White Penguin, Antarctica

Sad, lonely leucistic penguin I spotted back in 2008.
Apparently rare to see.
Leucism is a condition in which there is partial loss of multiple types of pigmentation. The conventionally-colored penguins at this spot were avoiding this guy, and due to this type of unfair treatment they have a harder time finding a mate.
