As I perused your images, I was wondering why you only shot the backside of such a beautiful bird....then presto there it was in full glory! So impressive a set Antonio. Warthog have there place too... the mud! LOL smile

The peacock was impressing his lady not us smile. That's why he almost never turned his beauty towards us. And the muddy warthog was there to say goodbye smile

You always give us such interesting images to enjoy...quite a contest to lull us with colorful birds and then a surprise at the end with ugly Mr. Warthog 😂

Peacocks a' courting
showcasing their dancing
to a jungle fowl, sauntering,
by a wild boar muddying;
Oh! these days of romancing!

Beautifully taken. let's see one of you stood in front and the other in the back since you have shots from both sides? Really nice! And that colorful chicken/rooster!! Love it!
