Pavo cristatus mut. alba
Wandering around the gardens on Isola Madre on Lake Maggiore, Italy.
Lovely photos. Interestingly this is not an albino, as it would have red or pink eyes. The Indian Peafowl (or Blue Peafowl) can often have a genetic mutation known as leucism that causes a lack of pigment in the plumage. Apparently the chicks are also born yellow and become white as they mature!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peafowlhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_peaf...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leucism
I always found albino peacocks astonishingly beautiful.Lovely spotting, thanks for sharing!
