Peacock Photography

I can't believe I've already been here a week and this is my first post about the trip. I've been having so much fun I've had a hard time scheduling in blogging time! I want to share what we've been up to recently though so I'll try to post pictures more often.

This week we went to an awesome place called Flamingo Gardens. They had all kinds of wildlife but my favorite by far was all the free roaming peacocks. It was mating season so all the males were strutting their stuff in all their glory. I may be slightly obsessed with them, they are just so gorgeous. I love the colors and every angle is different.

These guys were so huge. With all their feathers up they were probably around 5 feet tall! And they were so domesticated, they kept wanting us to feed them and we could walk within inches of their feathers and they won't even be bothered. Gorgeous, gorgeous creatures!

Hope I didn't overload you with all the peacock photography but I just love them!
