This proud peacock put on a beautiful show at the Byculla zoo, Mumbai.
I always go there to see the flora and usually do not look at the animals as I can not bear to see them in their pitiable condition, but it was difficult not to notice this fabulous spectacle.
The same peacock put up a repeat performance on 3 May 2009.

Post Script: The unintended lighting "effect" is due to the green acrylic roof above the poor peacocks cage. Noticed this on a subsequent visit.
