Wordless Wednesday: Beautiful Peacocks

At Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo, they have a good amount of Indian Blue Peafowl roaming the grounds, The males, called peacocks, are the ones with the bright, iridescent colors. On our visit there back in April, I was able to snap quite a few photos. Since they  let them roam freely around the zoo, you will encounter them anywhere and everywhere.





This next one was hanging out with me in the garden area while I waited for my boys. I followed this poor guy around for a good 30 minutes taking an obscene amount of photos.





Seriously, I am lucky he didn't attack me with how in his face I was. He looks pretty annoyed with me.

  1. Beautiful! I love seeing peacocks up close - have you seen white ones in person? A zoo in Phoenix has them and they are quite amazing.

  10. They let the peacocks at the zoo here roam free, too. Which is all well and good until they really do start chasing you. Not that I know from experience or anything.

  19. I thought they were all called peacocks, just male and female ones. Wow, you got some great shots. Did you chase or try to irritate one just so he'd open his feathers? *raises hand* I know I'm guilty of it :P

  21. Beautiful pictures! Our next door neighbor has peacocks, and they are amazingly loud and annoying. It seriously sounds like someone is dying when they screech. In the 4 years we have been here I have only seen them with their tails up once too.
