Repeat performance on 3 May 2009.
I usually do not look at the caged animals at the zoo which I visit purely to enjoy the rare and varied flora, for which it is a treasure house.
This spectacle however, earned my rapt attention.
The green hue is due to the strong mid summer morning sunlight filtering through the green fiberglass translucent roof of the cage."
We're so accustomed to the brilliant colors of India that seeing something absent of color is shocking! The peacock's full performance is here.
Beautiful albino peacock!
