P is for..Peacock


There's something about peacocks that makes you just stop and look. They look so royal, and seem to know it too, by the way they walk! Their beautiful plumes are among the richest colours in the bird kingdom. We spotted this peacock fly to the top of a cage at the Emirates Park and Zoo in Abu Dhabi (UAE) that we visited last year. It was a lovely place, and was Little Dude's first close look at animals like giraffes, zebras, and monkeys. He was so enthralled by the birds, especially the flamingoes and turkeys!

You're right, peacocks are so striking and their coloured feathers are simply beautiful. Great #alphabetphtoto x

they are creatures of beauty, when they parade round with their feathers on display, unless ur my brother who for some crazy reason has a big fear of them. #alphabetproject

I love peacocks. Some of my cousins are in the country and every time we visited they had peacocks running all around. So amazing.

Peacocks are stunning. I really like this view of the peacock with the feathers down.

They are really majestic creature and reminds us that nature can be very beautiful. Thanks for sharing his photo. Been awhile since I saw one beautiful creature like him =) #alphabetphoto

We have a peacock that wonders around our village. People either love it or hate it. He does have a taste for certain plants from the local gardens, which probably explains a lot. #AlphabetPhoto

They are amazing birds and wonderful to see close up. You are right they do strut about looking like the own the place!

My husband went to a work retreat a few months ago where there were so many peacocks. One of their assignments was to paint one and he brought it home and it now hangs on our wall :)

Tarana said...

Thanks, Merlinda, they really are awe-inspiring!

Tarana said...

Must be a great place to live in to see such wondrous sights! I can only see tall buildings and cars :)

Tarana said...

They do have something royal about them, don't they?!

Tarana said...

That must be a beautiful picture! Luckily, we see them often when we visit India.
