Pretty Peacock

Yesterday I was walking back to my home through Ward Park and I took some photographs.  Today I am sharing the beautiful Peacock that I photographed through 1" square wire mesh!  Tomorrow I will show you the rest of the photos.  I am still working on my photos from Scotland  however I am very disappointed with a lot of them.

I suggest you put these photos into slide mode, grab a cup of coffee. sit down and enjoy the beauty of the Peacock.































Thank you for visiting my blog.
Thank you for all that welcomed me back to blogging and to those who left comments.  I appreciate all your kindness.

    1. HI Jeanne Glad you liked the Peacock and my photos, however the Peacock was not interested in me at all but was busy displaying to the females so it was extremely difficult to photo him as he moved around a lot and the wire often was in the shot!

  5. HI Adrian I took at lot more photos than these as it was extremely difficult to shot a moving Peacock who was intent on displaying all shot through a 1 inch square wire mesh! Glad you enjoyed them.

  7. He is a beautiful bird and I am surprised that his coloring is different than what I have seen here. I would have thought a Peacock is a Peacock, but apparently not. I will have to look it up. Your shots, particularly the close ups, are wonderful and I empathize with you ...Trying to get a picture through a one inch wire mesh had to be excruciating. Great job Margaret.

  8. HI Andrea Glad you liked the post and the Peacock. I am hoping that one day the one with the beautiful tail feathers will have them fully displayed like a fan when I am passing. I wonder what other colours you are thinking of.in your Peacocks.

  11. You obviously enjoyed taking all these images Margaret, you did well to 'loose' the wire mesh. He was displaying so well, it's a shame he hasn't got his full compliment of 'eye spotted' tail covert feathers though...[;o)

    1. HI Trevor Well now I know that one is displaying, I will look into the park more often to try and catch the one with the beautiful tail displaying although that might be even more difficult through the 1" wire!
