The ignorant peacock - Il pavone ignorante

by Mimmo Mallamo March. 23, 2012 4337 views

===================
Music: Don't Be Shy by Cat Stevens [tny.gs]
===================
If a man knew anything, he would sit in a corner and be modest; but he is such an ignorant peacock, that he goes bustling up and down, and hits on extraordinary discoveries

Se l’uomo sapesse tutto, si siederebbe in un angolo e farebbe il modesto; ma è un tale pavone ignorante, che si agita affaccendato qua e là e finisce per inciampare in scoperte straordinarie.

(Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Such an amazing capture, Mimmo - and an awesome caption! I used a RWEmerson quote on my Sunday post! I tried to get a peacock in "full tail" the other day, but never got a shot as good as this one!

Well, this shot is just spectacular Mimmo. I like what you said. There's a lot to be said for a little modesty.
