Peacock Portrait – SOOC
It is fun to watch and photograph the wandering peacocks at the Philadelphia Zoo. The sad part is they eat the fast food (fried chicken, french fries) that people leave behind on the ground. I can’t imagine this is very healthy for the peacocks.

Wow, this is impressive. I can never catch ’em fast enough when we visit the zoo.
The ones at the zoo are particularly slow. Not scared at all of humans.
Really junk food? I hope they get some game bird grower pellets too…beautiful bird…thank you posting a comment on my name post. I think your name is beautiful….funny how we come about these things. I forgot to post how my daughter got her first name….I have working on a blog book for my daughter and am sharing some of the posts on my main blog…lately I am feeling more mortal than at some other times…LOL….
You asked a while ago about golden rod. It grows wild along the wood edge and we don’t cut ours down….
Very nice portrait. We have a lot of peacocks around where I live. There are a lot of parks (not reserves or sanctuaries or zoos) and the peacocks nest there like all other birds. And they have now learned to live with human neighbours.
A stunning profile of this elegant bird! I am always enchanted by their irridescent colours!
Are peacocks supposed to eat meat? Just wondering.
You have shown us a wonderful photo here. I like how the blue of its head and color are repeated in little dots in the blurred background.
No idea (see Michelle’s comment – “game bird grower pellets” – sounds like something they should eat), but I don’t think anyone should eat french fries (one of my daughter’s absolute favorite foods, sigh).
LOL, so humans are not the only junk food lovers! Great shot, such a beautiful bird.
what a fabulous shot!
Super photo. I like watching peacocks too, not that I see many around rural Texas.
Such beautiful colors. I’ve had so many great visits to the Philadelphia Zoo. Love it there!
What a gorgeous shot of a gorgeous bird!
Yes, I can’t imagine any food left at the zoo is healthy for them.
Peacocks are such an amazing shade of blue!
