Peacock Feather Eye Macro. by EncroVision

Peafowl include two Asiatic species (the blue or Indian peafowl originally of India and Sri Lanka and the green peafowl of Burma, Indochina, and Java) and one African species (the Congo peafowl native only to the Congo Basin) of bird in the genera Pavo and Afropavo of the Phasianidae family, the pheasants and their allies, known for the male’s piercing call and, among the Asiatic species, his extravagant eye-spotted tail covert feathers which he displays as part of a courtship ritual. The term peacock is properly reserved for the male; the female is known as a peahen, and the immature offspring are sometimes called peachicks.(Wikipedia)

Blanc de Blanc ! by Mamouette

Les paons sont proches des faisans et des Pintades. Leur plumage remarquable est la raison de leur popularité dans la culture et les arts.

Plus rare, le paon blanc fait la roue de la même façon que le paon bleu.
Avec son plumage immaculé, le paon blanc est tout simplement majestueux. Mâle et femelle sont identiques. Seul le mâle arbore une traîne à partir de 3 ans.
