Peacock wooing peahen

This picture was taken at Warwick Castle, during my 2003 travels around Great Britain.

 

I loved how these peacocks kept trying to woo the peahens, and the peahens would have none of it. This one time, as a peahen walked over, a peacock started rattling its plumage at her. She ignored it and kept on walking. Another peahen walked over, and the peacock quickly turned and started rattling its plummage at the new one. Not very picky, was he? (Isn't anthropomorphizing fun?)
