Telegraph reader Josette Akhras from Georgia in the US sent us this picture of a peacock in the snow. She writes: Here is a picture of a wild peacock that lives in my subdivision. He has been here for years, and visits every day for grapes, etc. If you have a photograph you'd like us to consider for a picture gallery, please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org, supplying a little info on where and when the picture was taken.
