Peacock, Brookfield Zoo

Spotted a peacock at Brookfield Zoo on Saturday. He got upset at some visitors watching him, and put on quite a show. I'd never seen a peacock up close before. Gorgeous!

He had quite a screech when he was fully affronted.

The rear view was pretty cool, too.

  1. Beautiful colors, except the rear-end shot! The blues and greens are so pretty, especially because they are natural (unlike my hair!). Kris

  2. Glorious!
