The Male Peacock (Peafowl)
Los Angeles County Arboretum

There is a large population of peacocks at the Arboretum. The story is EJ Baldwin saw his first peacock in India during his world tour in 1867. He later had a huge windfall from a stock increase and when the stock was sold he imported the peafowl in 1880.

This gentleman posed for quite some time with his beautiful plumage!
Their feathers have a natural iridescent color and the detail is quite amazing!
