Day 5 for Nature Photo Challenge: Peacock’s Train

0W5A0107-Edit - peacock tain

Thanks to Ulli for giving me an opportunity. Ulli is a remarkable photographer. I so enjoy her nature photos from seascape to skyscape and more. Her sunset for day 7 will blow you away! Do visit her most recent post: Schwarzer Dienstag ♥ ♥ ♥ Black Tuesday♥ ♥ ♥ Mardi Noir

The peacock flew over and landed on the tree branch (right above where I was standing), he then slowly let his gorgeous train drop all the way down. He stayed there for a couple of minutes without moving his train and shaking his feather, and the morning sunlight was just perfect. I was able to capture the colors and details of his beautiful feather. 🙂

Seonaid’s (Breath of Green Air) “Dance Of Light” will take your breath away. This is how she describes, “Dance of light through petals and leaves is the dance of our planets life breath.”  Both of her photos and words are beautiful and poetic. I’m inviting her to join the 7-day Nature Photo Challenge.

Fun facts:

Female peacocks are believed to choose their mates according to the size, color, and quality of these outrageous feather trains.

Luckily, the peacocks shed their train every year after mating season, so the feathers can begathered and sold without the birds coming to any harm. The average lifespan of a peacock in the wild is about 20 years.

Thank you for visiting!

    • I was happy to hear about the feathers too. 🙂 My first time seeing a peacock staying in a tree with his train dropping down like that. He did give me enough time to adjust my camera before I click, I was thankful for that 🙂

Nice benches in a peaceful ambiance,wonderful response to the challenge,but the glorious train of this fabulous bird is unique!Wonderful eyespots on the iridescent feathers,it’s really showy,dear Amy!I have kept a feather I found in a park in the island of Rhodes,there are a lot of peacocks there walking around free.It’s said that if you tell them that they have ugly legs,they unfold the tail to show off its beauty.Loved the way you captured it,I have never seen it like that before 🙂 ❤ xxx
