A resident of Mayfield Park

Mayfield Park, here in Austin, is home to many peacocks.  They just wander around and pose for you - it's pretty cool.  If you get here early in the morning, they are still all aloft in the branches of a big tree, which sort of functions like a peacock hotel of sorts.  They recently dropped their feathers too, which made an early morning visit pretty fun, collecting all these beautiful things.  Though I am not into photographing animals, I have to make an exception when I come across a regal creature like this.
