Peacock at the Gorge.

A trip up to the Launceston Cataract Gorge this morning for a bit of a walk before the heat of the day.
Being springtime the Peacocks are about with the males and their plumes, showing off.  I took a few photos of a very active male. He was quiet and still, then he got a bit active, it was hard to get a clear sharp imagine of his plume.
There is a post/photo [here] of the peacock I took last season, that one stayed still.
