Taken at the Bronx Zoo parking lot. This peacock was pecking at his reflection on a truck bumper. I was told that the males do this all the time,I guess he's trying to 'drive' his competition away.

Interesting capture with the peacock dealing with its reflective counterpart. I would imagine that the peacock must see himself in color rather than in b&w.

Peacock colors are so amazing! I bet all male peacocks are Leo's! :-)
