‘Cocks & ‘Hens

Peacocks are probably my third favourite bird, after penguins and flamingos.  WaitI forgot owlsand toucanshmm, maybe peacocks are my fifth favourite bird.  Anyway, I’m getting side-tracked.  They are very pretty in any case.  I’ve yet to capture a male displaying his train of feathers – surely the holy grail of peacock shots – but here is a collection of my favourite photos to date.
