Peacock madness!

Look at me again!

I usually just post one picture but I think I've got enough in my reserves to go with a few in one post. So today's post is dedicated to peacock madness! The above is the peacock showing off its colours to me. Only one peacock in the whole bird park does this. I was walking past this fella and I didn't expect anything, camera was pointing down and suddenly, WHOOSH!

Lovely, lovely feathers

And then we have a closer look at the feathers. Impressive isn't it? And to think all this just to attract the females. Speaking about the females...

Its feeding time!!

They are not as colourful. Wonder why? :P

Shots taken with Nikon D90 and 105mm.

ps: Reverted back to 500px wide after I noticed some monitors won't be able to display the 800px pics properly :(
