Singapore Zoo - 2

Continuing on another sight from the zoo. Another interesting bird i caught was the peacock (also known as peafowl, for males. Females are known as peahen). There was only the white peacock, not the usual Indian blue species.

And any peafowl has a beautiful plumage (or tail) which is used as part of courtship to the peahen.

Hence, it takes the appearance of the peahen to see the sight above.

And even when the peahen is about to walk away, the peafowl still maintains his beautiful plumage, until the peahen is out of sight! How vain ;)

Its interesting how this courtship goes on between peacocks and i always am amazed by the peafowl to look his best in front of the peahen. Hope you enjoyed this!
