When I was a young boy I used to love these colorful birds. I can remember thinking that their feathers were gorgeous and chasing them around farms on school outings. That’s right, I am a country boy who grew up in a small enough town where field trips to the farm where a normal and anticipated occurrence. The beauty of the peafowl may have helped spark my love of animals.
I found this particular peafowl gazing deep into my camera lens while visiting the Tennessee Safari Park with my nieces and nephew. Hopefully these trips help them to spark a life long love of our amazingly colorful natural world.
