Bustling Up and Down...

I snapped this photo the other day at the Zoo and something about it looked familiar. I couldn't quite figure it out until I read this quote:
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. 

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Amazing photo! Great quotation, too :).

Lovely picture! Why are all male birds the prettiest? Because they will be seen first and be eaten first. :)

A female is a Peahen...male is a Peacock. Funny hu?

Thanks for sharing.

Love the quote, and goes so wonderfully well with this gorgeous photo. I always wondered why the males were the pretty ones, thanks Heather for this info.
