Indian Peafowl (Pavo cristatus)

It would seem to be impossible to take a bad photo of a displaying male Indian Peafowl, known as a peacock.   Females are known as peahens, while small immatures are called peachicks.   The peacock above was photographed at Heidelberg Zoo in Germany.   They are native to south Asia, but have been introduced and are both wild and domesticated in many other parts of the world.
