Proud as a Peacock!

These were all taken at the Fountain of Youth, in St. Augustine, FL.  I had never seen an albino peacock before!  They were very tame, and apparently are quite used to people feeding them, but the albino was a little shy! He didn't want to come out in the open so I could get a full shot of him.

 You will notice there is a second one, sneaking around from behind, looking for food!



After the food was all gone, this fellow turned his back on us, not knowing that was the shot I wanted all along!

The End

Stroll on over to Misty's Camera Critters for some more fun photos!  Have a wonderful weekend!

HI Linda, wonderful shots of the peacocks. Looks like fun feeding them. Especially the last shot of the tail feathers. Just beautiful.

He is a pretty one! Nice of him to turn his back on you! LOL

Oh, aren't they gorgeous?!!! I've only seen one albino, I think it was either San Diego or Honolulu....but such stately creatures.

Awesome images Linda.

that last 'parting shot' is well worth the snub. :)

Gorgeous birds!

They are not albino; they are white. I used to have a male, and they are beautiful. I still have one white hen.

That was definitely worth waiting for Linda, like you I've never seen an albino peacock before, it's so beautifully snowy white and in it's own way just as gorgeous. Love the name of the place..Fountain of Youth, I hope you had a drink!!

I love the peacock! The albino is fascinating.
Funny, after my tower post, hubby suggested a church theme! Yours are far better than my run of the mill Ontario churches. But I will tuck the theme away for another day!
