Showing off, peacock-style!

on December 1, 2013


King (blue) and Prince (white) have taken a liking to flirting with the peahens just outside my office door. Needless to say, and the pictures show this I hope, the two white princesses are indifferent. King and Prince have a fraught relationship, but they never fight because Prince, being younger, always capitulates and stops showing off when King comes along.

Gutsy9 came to my office door, a bit confused, and wanting a pat!

    What a stunning display from Prince – he can park his tail feathers outside my front door any day.
    Poor little Gutsy – still the little child at heart.
