Strutting Peacock

Peacocks roam free at Magnolia Gardens as well as Middleton Place that I featured last week. On a recent visit this one was entertaining visitors showing off all of his glorious colors.

Using a small grassy area bordered with flowers as a stage he preformed a dance that was very elaborate, turning in full circles then reversing. If he was trying to impress a peahen it didn’t work as there weren’t any in sight. I was impressed though.

  1. Had a neighbour thought peacocks would be a good idea. Almost ended in fisticuffs. Screams at all hours, and perching on my rainwater collection roof.

    Good looking bird menace in the wrong setting.

    Nice pics, though Ellen.

    1. Being tired and in a hurry I was going to give the enlarged view a miss but your comment made me take a look and its beautiful, the colours are magic like in stained glass! Glad I didn’t miss that view, thanks Pete!
