Macaroni Penguin (Eudyptes chrysolophus)

This extremely rare visitor to southern African shores was found at Brandfontein, Agulhas National Park in the Western Cape. Luckily for local birders it was busy moulting and allowed us enough time so that quite a few could get to see it. I flew down to Cape Town, drove out to Agulhas and was able to take a few shots.
