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!
Hi Maria. Thanks. Before I combine it, I want to clarify some points. The two spottings, while on the same day and in the same general area, were a number of hours and miles apart. So should they be combined? Will there ever be support for a spotting with multiple locations? (And the possibility to link individual photos to individual locations, if so?) Should all my spottings of the same species be combined under a single spotting? Perhaps some of these questions would make sense in the FAQs?
Was just looking it up for you: Pachyta quadrimaculata.
It seems that http://www.koleopterologie.de/gallery/ is a useful site for all your beetle identification needs :)
