I followed this guy around for a few minutes hoping he would just turn
around, just once!
Finally he did as if to say, "Will you stop following me?. There, take your photo and leave me in peace." I was rewarded with the look! Perseverance paid off.
I said "Thank you Mr. Peacock."
This was taken in the beautiful Waimea Canyon where the Audubon Society of O'ahu calls home. It's on the north shore of the island. It is well worth the visit for all the flora and fauna that you see.
The culturally, ecologically and historically precious
Waimea Valley, on the North Shore of O'ahu,
Hawai'i, was saved from division and development by
concerted community action in 2006.
The last traditional Hawaiian ahupua'a
on O'ahu -- from the mountains to the sea --
remains whole, so its sacred voices can be heard and respected.
