Hi YG, very nice....one thing I know they make haunting calls in the jungle. Can be scary too if we don't know.
Have a nice day, Lee.

It's not often that you see a peacock spreading its magnificient feathers. I understand that there is a way to coax the bird to display its train. You may well ask how. Well, just stand in front, but not too near the peacock, open the umbrella(the more colourful the better) and the peacock will open its colourful feathers for all to admire.

lee, the call is very loud. as i moving away after taking the photos, i heard its call. in the jungle, definitely scary!

stanley, i suppose a girl wearing a very colourful skirt can provoke the same kind of response.
