Peacocks (10 Friday Photos)

Peacocks, in my humble opinion, are one of the most beautiful creatures on the planet. I was lucky enough to have a peacock family in my neighborhood for awhile while I was growing up (although, some considered them a menace due to the loud noises they would make — never bothered me). Still, they weren’t always so easy to get a glimpse of with their tail feathers raised and pictures such as these below still amaze me.

Enjoy this week’s 10 Friday Photos.

(As is becoming all too common, I couldn’t keep it to 10.)

  • Did you happen to grow up in Berkeley Ca? There was a family of peacocks in this one neighborhood where my friend lived back in the ’90’s when I was going to college at Cal

  • Yes the Peacocks in our neighbourhood loved you too or our yard or family — they always shed their feathers in our yard making all the neighbours envious…They liked us..
