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

Happy Wordless Wednesday!
Beautiful pictures and awesome quote Veronica!ReplyDelete
Wildlife and nature always teaches us a lesson...the beauty is within, not the outer skin. Your quote is perfect. And beautiful bird.ReplyDelete
Well, maybe the girls will be turned on by that...who knows?ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Great quote! CheersReplyDelete
You are so right - having the best attitude rocks.ReplyDelete
That is one incredible brave Peacock :)
I love this quote and I love that he still honks loudly :)ReplyDelete

Aww, poor guy to have lost his foot. Thank goodness it's not slowing him down in love, lol. :)ReplyDelete
Wow! I love that peacock's attitude - and the quote is so fitting. It's a lesson for us humans for sure.ReplyDelete
