One afternoon this week, I saw a male peacock out by the road. By the time, I could turn the car around, it had hopped up on the fence and then inside.
A picture of that would have been a nice shot as it draped those long, long tail feathers down over the fence. But it did not cooperate for me.
However, as I listened to another peacock in the field (that I never saw), I noticed a hen slipping around in the plants fairly near me.
Her less flashy coloring does help her hide when she is nesting.
