Feathered models with IRChrome filter

The IR chrome filter seeks to recreate the effect of the olden-times kodachrome film,  spares the blue and turns foliage rich reds and oranges.  Intended for blue skies and such, but also a nice colour effect on blue-feathered birds, and the images don’t need the ‘colour-swap’ processing that most infrared camera images require.

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.
