We were treated to quite the show at the zoo recently -- it must be mating season for the peafowl, because all of the peacocks are in full plumage. Such stunning, unbelievable colors! What a glorious tribute to the endless artistry of our great Creator God.
Pictures simply can't do them justice. Of course, all of that finery requires maintenance:
The peacocks are quite tame, and allow spectators to approach. Who knew that a peacock had so many individual types and colors of feathers (apart from the gorgeous tail plumes)?
I couldn't help but smile, though, when the showy fellow in the top picture turned around -- the view is a little less exciting from the back! I suppose for every showy display, there's a "behind the scenes?"
