Seduction dance at the Blumeninsel Siebenbergen

This mating pair, a "doesn't-seem-that-impressed" peahen and a magnificent peacock in full display, are two of the fascinating specimens of an exotic avian collection that range free in the fantastic botanical gardens of the Flowered Island of the Seven Hills (Blumeninsel Siebenbergen) at the Staatspark Karlsaue in Kassel, Germany.

 

What was particularly amazing to me was at times when the hen was positioned just right the peacock would vibrate his feathers in such a way that you could hear the quivering, shaking noise from far way.
