SHADES OF BLUE AND GREEN

A male peacock basks in the early afternoon sun at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado Springs.  Although not native to the area, the exotic birds have adapted to the climate and roam the mountain zoo grounds year round.

Its hard not to be mesmerized by the rich iridescent colors of the male peacock's plumage.

Absolutely gorgeous.  Stunning!  Gee, you should let others know that you photograph.  I didn't even know.  I don't know where I have been!

I agree, it is hard not to be mesmerized.  They wander the Denver Zoo like this as well.  Awesome!~
