My Close Encounter With Peacocks

Sure, I’ve seen live peacocks before but they were inside their cages not outside or this close:

Actually, in the above photo I was scared that the peacock would land on my shoulders and start pecking angrily at me for getting too close. I seriously could feel its claws on me. I was so relieved that no such incident happened.

I’m not sure if I’ve ever seen one with its tail all spread out in their full glory, in courtship and trying to impress a lady peacock. For sure the human onlookers were as I’ve captured in this video:

As if that wasn’t enough another pose for the still camera for posterity:

This is my next clue for our vacation location quiz. But seriously, I just thought that my peacock encounter deserved to have a special entry of its own.
