Driving through Coral Gables, Florida, Kate spotted three peahens!  She quickly pulled over, and I jumped out of the car, hoping to photograph them – which I did.

They were very aware of me; but none-the-less, allowed me to continue to approach them, though they never let their guard down.

In a complete state of wonder, I turned from the peahens, and came across a peacock, watching over the hens and me.

After the peacock took off, I made my way back to the car, quite satisfied with Kate’s find and hopeful I had captured the majestic members of the pheasant family.  We turned away from the cul-de-sac, where the peafowl were frolicking, onto a main thoroughfare, where once again, Kate spotted yet another peacock!

I trekked through the field, camera in hand, and gave chase – well maybe not chase, but a little foot pursuit, wanting to get as close to him as possible.

The peacock posed for a few shots; and then took off!

No, I did not find any feathers, in the field; but I did look, thinking of Allison.
