White birds of Heaven: Isola Bella, Italy

On Isola Bella (“Beautiful Island”) on Maggiore Lake you might encounter quite a peculiar bird.


The voice of a squeaking old door …


… the magnetic eyes of a chicken …


… but the plumage directly from the garden of Heaven.


May you meet it before it starts “singing”…


… although its royal beauty is worth some ear pain.


Click on each picture to appreciate the wonderful plumage of this white peacock.

    They are ridiculous and yet truly beautiful at the same time. Your photos capture them completely.

      I was as well surprised! I thought they were albinos, but their eyes are not red. HereI found they are genetic variations of the blue and green more common peacock.
