A Touch of Beauty


We get so weary of all the ugliness of politics and bad things in the world. Sometimes we need to stop and smell the flowers - or enjoy a touch of beauty. Check out this albino Peacock!

Exquisite! Like a living snowflake.

I hope this bird has an extroverted personality otherwise its life would be hell on earth!

Cheers.

Wow. Gorgeous. And why do all the male birds have the beautiful feather and colors? I think we females should be the Queens of "feathered finery":)

Thomas, you are welcome. I like to share beauty and good things. Thank you for visiting us.

Daniel; I am sure that his owners keep him well protected. Even normal peacocks are usually kept safe.Surely a rarity like him would be cherished. If he was human, he'd probably be a bit conceited(?).

Goddess; Possibly nature gave the females duller coloration so they would not be so visible to predators. Probably the males are so beautifully adorned so they can attract mates.
One male of any species can impregnate many females, but only a female can propagate the species. It is more important (nature-wise) to protect the females.

Everyone, thank you for stopping by.
