Dancing White Peacock

This proud peacock put on a beautiful show at the Byculla zoo, Mumbai.

I always go there to see the flora and usually do not look at the animals as I can not bear to see them in their pitiable condition, but it was difficult not to notice this fabulous spectacle.

The same peacock put up a repeat performance on 3 May 2009.

Post Script: The unintended lighting "effect" is due to the green acrylic roof above the poor peacocks cage. Noticed this on a subsequent visit.

Thanks. Swapnil - I dont think there was any light behind him. My camera lens was stuck through the wire mesh of the cage. It was around 10am just 20 days ago so fairly bright sunshine. RWHFY - Im sure you are right about the nomenclature but I prefer to call it a White Peacock. I saw this spectacle on 3 consecutive visits, so if anyone is in Mumbai right now, take a trip to the zoo and Im sure our buddy will oblige with another show - mating ritual?

Wow... Now only I get to [I]see[/I] your famous white peacock. That is a stunning pic, with a very, very lucky (if not by design) lighting effect :D

Im not aware of any lighting effect, this was taken as I said earlier, by leaning uncomfortably over a hedge, sticking my ordinary digicam into the wire mesh and clicking away! Update: 3 May 09 - The same peacocks put up a repeat performance, and the lighting effect is due to the translucent green fibre glass roof on top of the cage! Mystery solved.
