As Proud as a...



The Tropical Butterfly House that we visited and I shared in last week's post not only had butterflies but in the gardens around it, there were quite a few peacocks roaming freely.

They were not shy, being used to the visitors offering them food.



And at long last, I have managed to snap a peacock in all its glory with the feathers fanning in a proud display!



But we all know the saying that pride comes before a fall and so this proud peacock was suddenly blown into the shrubbery by a gust of wind!
We did laugh at his misfortune but it was comical to see him struggle against the wind in such an undignified way!

Rear ended!
Thanks for stopping by!

  6. I'm so jealous I tried to snap some shots of peacocks in someone's yard on a spring road trip and they just didn't turn out. These are nice and detailed.

  15. They are amazing birds. I would be very proud to have such feathers but pride is not always a good thing I suppose, especially when a gust of wind blows through :)) You have captured those feathers beautifully Christine, great photos!

  24. I don't know where they came from, but for a while when we lived in California a pair of peacocks roosted in a tree across the street from our house. While very beautiful, they sure could make a loud noise. - Margy
