Peacock

No park showcases peacocks as well as Gir does. The drab brown brush provides a striking contrast to the gloriously colored males.

 

Sadly though, peacocks are very timid and will run for cover when the jeeps pass by. They also refuse to pose on trees. Taking to flight as soon as the jeep stops.

 

A peacock taking flight is quite a sight! It seems to defy gravity as it carries its pretty train behind it.
