"Bird Eye" for Show Me a Photo 36

Hello Bird Lovers!

Today I have my contribution to the Show Me A Photo Contest - Round 36. The theme this week is "BIRD EYE."

I present to you

PEACOCK / PEAHEN

The term "peacock" is commonly used to refer to birds of both sexes. Technically, only males are peacocks. Females are peahens, and together, they are called peafowl.

Distinctive Tail Feathers

These tail feathers, or coverts, spread out in a distinctive train that is more than 60 percent of the bird’s total body length and boast colorful "eye" markings of blue, gold, red, and other hues. The large train is used in mating rituals and courtship displays. It can be arched into a magnificent fan that reaches across the bird's back and touches the ground on either side. Females are believed to choose their mates according to the size, color, and quality of these outrageous feather trains.

From the start of the Feathered Friends Community, I've admired the talented aviary photography and creative subjects presented by the contributors.

This is my first time entering the SMaP contest.
