photoblog image Peacock

Peacock

So i was told about the Lekki Conservation center, to be quite honest i expected a lot more animals than i ended up seeing. I really hoped i'd take loadsssssss of shots but heyyyyyy we don't always get what we want.

This is a male peafowl. The term "peacock" is commonly used to refer to birds of both sexes. Technically, only males are peacocks. Females are peahens, and together, they are called peafowl.

They are beautiful aren't they. funnily enough I am posting a peacock tomorrow. Nice shot
Lanre Balogun: Thank you Janet..... just had a look at yours. Yes they are beautiful, it's amazing how it's the males that are colourful and not the females
like this shot. would have preferred it the whole pic was in colour, but thats just me. love me colours!
Lanre Balogun: Thank you for the comment...... i really wanted it to be in colour all through too but i felt there were distractions with the coloured photo, hence the contrast idea
