Rare White Sparrow in Ryn Shell Original Artwork
Leucism (/ˈluːsɪzəm, -kɪz-/) is a condition in which there is partial loss of pigmentation in an animal resulting in white, pale, or patchy coloration of the skin, hair, feathers, scales or cuticle, but not the eyes. It is occasionally spelled leukism.
Albinism is a condition in which there is an absence of melanin, which gives color to the skin, feathers, hair and eyes. Vertebrates with albinism are not only white (or sometimes pale yellowish) in color but they also have very pale eyes, often pink or red in color as the blood vessels show through.
Working through the photos I took with my new-second hand lens and I cannot believe the close up quality.
This is the lens that took these photos today.
That bee picture is amazing. It is clearer than my eyes focus on the bee.
