A peep into my peafowl diary: Of Peacocks & Peahens

‘The pride of the peacock is the glory of god’ – William Blake

From my peafowl diaries

The courting season – entries from My Peafowl Diary

……….and that is what i call basking in someone else’s glory. Pea fowls frequent the little community centre right in front of my balcony on the first floor. I have usually photographed them from the same balcony. sometimes they look up to me – when they are on the ground; but very often they fly up to the second floor and look down on me. Sometimes they sit there as if posing for me and challenging me to take more shots. I took this shot last month when I found this peacock spreading out his wings in full glory but he did not want me anywhere near him and because of the iron rails of the center’s walls, i could not take a full blown picture of him. the peahens sure it made it up for me though!
