Camera Critters # 9:

Another stop on our granddaughter’s tour of Jersey was a local zoo. Mr. Peacock was proudly strutting around showing off his handsome tail feathers which were in full fan. Than we caught sight of an albino peacock. I had never seen one; even the “eyes” on his tail feathers were white. It was so unusual to see this normally brightly colored bird void of all color. He was beautiful, almost angelic.

It is beautiful. I would have never imagined. I think it's funny how beautiful a peacock can be and how horrible they sound!

I love peacocks, and I have seen the albino kind before, so unique! My boys love the story about how peacocks for their "eye" feathers in Greek mythology.

Great Camera Critters post!

I love Peacock pictures and you certainly famed it well. An albino Peacock seems like an oxymoron. No color on a beautiful bird.

Such majestic looking birds :) But they do sound awful with their squawking!

Those are magnificent! We have a couple like them at the zoo near here but the two times I've been there they did not cooperate. :(

Lucky you! :0)

Peacocks are always so gorgeous; but that albino one is stunning in white!

Jules said...

Peacock feathers are magnificent aren't they?

Lilli & Nevada said...

Altho the colors are so pretty on the normal looking peacocks there is something about the albino ones.

My girls & I were talking about peacocks this weekend - funny that I see them here now! :)

Great shots... they always look so stuck up, don't they?

Celeste said...

Beautiful. We had a colorful one wandering the neighborhood a few years back.

Kay said...

Wow! Terrific peacock photos!

kjpweb said...

Thats very beautiful - and angelic is the proper term! I saw one at Treknature, which was half and half - which added greatly to the effect and looked totally stunning!
