I took so many pictures at the Sylvan Heights waterfowl park, it’s going to take a few posts to share them with you. Our featured guest today is the peacock. He was the most photogenic, apparently, because I have more photos of him than any of the others. I’m loading them medium size so the page will load faster, but you can enlarge them by clicking on the image.
In this photo, do you see the acrylic square above and to the left of the bird? A small section of the fence has been cut out, and if one pays for a photo pass, a key is provided to unlock those so pictures can be taken without the wire cage between the photographer’s lens and the bird. Note to self: Go back soon–and get that pass!
Here’s a close-up. Doesn’t this remind one of the Emperor’s new clothes or something?
My hubby saw those feathers fanned out, but I missed it. I might have to get him his own camera…
Are you a follower of Cecelia’s blog? She recently acquired a peacock, Kupa, and then she got two peahens. In one of her posts, she was outside the barn when she heard something similar to a foghorn. Yep, it was Kupa! And I got to hear that sound for myself the other day. Nothing quite like it, except, well, a foghorn. Here’s a YouTube video so you can hear it for yourself:
Oops, almost forgot, the follow-up picture to Wednesday’s photo. I’m pretty sure this is a goose, but I don’t have the name. See? I need to go back!
