W/W - The One-footed Peacock

Like arrows, these curious footprints on the beach pointed us to this fella...
A one footed peacock
Apparently, he lost his left foot in a battle for alpha male status.
Despite his disability, he was honking loudly and amorously to the peahens around him, his pomposity no less than before, when his hobble was a strut. And judging by the peafowls' response to him, he still rules.
The only disability in life is a bad attitude - SCOTT HAMILTON

Wildlife and nature always teaches us a lesson...the beauty is within, not the outer skin. Your quote is perfect. And beautiful bird.

He sure is lovely with all that plumage!

That was the first animal Mica paid attention to at the zoo. When he went on a field trip to a farm for preschool, he argued with the farmer about how peacocks do belong on farms. He was 3, and I wasn't there. I got him a peacock puppet. It's so cool! Sadly he lost interest in the pretty bird.

Wow! I love that peacock's attitude - and the quote is so fitting. It's a lesson for us humans for sure.
