Day 129 – Happy Mothers Day

For part of our day with Mom, we went to the Leo Carrillo Ranch to see the peacocks at the peak of their “show season”.

We had hoped to get to see a good plumage display (one or two), but were pleasantly surprised by numerous displays throughout our walk through the park. The “guys” were really workin’ it, calling out almost constantly and showing their plumage for anyone walking nearby. They seemed just as eager to put on a show for people as they did for the hens. The park has more than 50 peacocks, so it was quite a show to see.

    Peacocks are so darn funny! I love that you got the shot of this loudmouth squaking… it makes his plumes look that much cooler and his blue soooo blue. This must have been a blast. Great photo, too!

      Yeah, it was a really good time, and a unique, unexpected experience for Mom on Mother’s Day.
