Dr Marm never without my Nikon!

Peacock showing off!

Full and proud!

Growing up in Southern California, I had the pleasure to be near The Arboretum in Arcadia.  It is not unusual to see Peacocks strutting through the neighborhoods surrounding the Arboretum.  It was a treat on a recent visit to catch a male showing off for a nearby hen.  For the record, she did not seem to be impressed…although it could have been the audience–maybe she was shy.

Here are a view shots of him showing off!

Colors are so vivid

Eye to eye

Side view

Is that the best you can do?

 Another part of his show is the rattling of his feathers…do not remember hearing that before…was quite loud!

Rear view...



A Train of feathers

One last view…

Full view!

  1. Beautiful!!! If I were to see a peacock showing off, I’d be so excited I’d never be able to think clearly enough to get all the right shots! Well done!

    Absolutely gorgeous. Didn’t realize their feathers were so full. Makes the ones at Daffodil Hill look like midgets!
