Not conventionally beautiful?

White peacock

This pale peacock is stomping about and strutting  his stuff for the benefit of another more gorgeously hued bloke.  There was not a jot of interest in the macho display from some nearby peahens, who very carefully weren’t watching.

Word for the day is leucism, is a condition in animals characterised by reduced pigmentation, and different from albinism.   Quite tricky to photograph without blowing out all the highlights.
