Showing off

This handsome fellow lives with another peacock and a small flock of peahens in a neat old barn in East Gwillimbury.

Oh wow!! There is something so magical about Peacocks. Look at that shimmery blue. Neat job. MB

Vicky said...

Great shot! beautiful, no wonder he is so proud!

VALKYRIEN said...

My goodness - WHAT a glorious bird! It is a wonder these birds can survive, with all that stash and finery and decorations! And that little "thing" on his head! Maybe he is developing a tiara? :)
Great shots of this wonder of nature!

Jan said...

Some great captures, here. Yes, he does look regal.

Indrani said...

Wow! What a show off!And the third shot is stunning!

judi said...

You did a great job of capturing his best side! I'm back with tales to tell.

Jenn Jilks said...

Wow, what a tail/tale!

PJ said...

They're beautiful! A few weeks ago I went looking for some peacocks I knew about but they had been moved out of the neighborhood. Lucky you.

Jarart said...

This is why they say "Proud as a Peacock"! Magnificent.

Norm said...

wow! the most elegant birds, love it..

Reader Wil said...

Wow! Should I say more! Always a pleasure to come here! Have a great weekend!

Jedediah said...

Great pictures of magnificent birds (although I always think that those little feathers on their head make them look a bit silly close up).

Jacob said...

I think those are the best peacock pictures I've ever seen. That includes my own!

RuneE said...

The male birds have more colours that the male humans! I'm all grey :-)

Magnificent photos!

Rhea said...

Yen said...

AMAZING! The first one is my favorite!!! :)

Carletta said...

Wonderful shots!
So nice that he spread his feathers for you. The closeup of his head is really nice - I never noticed they were so blue.

My post is here: Carletta’s Captures.

You got some beautiful shots. I am so jealous! The only peacock I ever got a photo of was at the Portland Zoo but they ahve removed all peacocks that strutted the grounds out of cages because one "attacked" a kid that "bothered it."

Just gorgeous shots!

ViennaDaily said...

Thats her with all the beauty and grandeur!!!

Karen said...

Absoloutly gorgeous !!!!

A friend of mine has peacocks that run around her yard. I am so looking forward to getting some shots of them with my 35mm SLR.

i beati said...

very regal and I can hear his voice now - look at me look at me - I'm strutting my stuff hah Sandy

Terri said...

What a gorgeous animal. I haven't seen a peacock in years. I love it when they shake their booty and vibrate those feathers. Great shots.

Rose said...

You have to admit they are one handsome bird! That blue just cannot be duplicated.

Greyscale Territory said...

Lovely shots! Amazing how such regal looking creatures can make an incredible sharp, raucous sound when there is an "intruder" to their world. I used to have 2 peacocks on my property in Tasmania and they used to make these harsh sounds when anyone drove up the driveway!

Dianne said...

he is regal!

kayleen said...

Wow this guy is amazing. Great capture, so amazing!

dot said...

These pictures are just plain out gorgeous!!!

Kendris said...

Beautiful shots! The OKC Zoo has an albino male that I would die to catch in full spread, but he's playing coy.

Oskar said...

His tail looks like a lot of eyes are looking at me.

Coca Cutie said...

Oh boy! Its awsome but he looks like he bites.

Ann said...

Wow!!! What a display.

The peacocks I saw at Shakespear park last Saturday have their feathers trimmed, (naturally) I did not see them open up their tails.

That Peacock is gorgeous, lovely shots.
