Camera Critters #156 - Resting Peacocks - April 2, 2011

These peacocks were photographed on the grounds of Middleton Plantation in
Charleston, South Carolina on a long ago visit.  I've been going through many
photographs in preparation for downsizing and a pending move.  In the process,
I've found many photographs to use in my blog.

I am participating in Camera Critters which is celebrating its three year anniversary!
Why don't you check out the site and add your photograph!!


  1. They are beautiful pictures...its ages since i saw one up close. Enjoy our weekend.

  3. These photos are beautiful, Carmen! I like watching peacocks.

  4. They are such a joy to see.
    You got great captures.

  5. These are truly beautiful images. I read your frustration in your comment. I will e-mail you privately regarding this. Mr. Linky isn't the service we use, and you do not need to pay to participate in the sign-in on Camera-Critters... that is why I pay... so you don't have to.

  6. Camera Critters, eh? Sounds fun.

    I have photos of our daughter at about ages 4 and 7 respectively with peacocks in a park. Cute critters, bit scary tho when they run at you. :)


  7. Beautiful shots!

    My Critters, come and see. Have A LOVELY WEEKEND!

  8. The peacocks are beautiful birds. Great shots!

  9. Funny- I never seem to think of them lying down, but of course they do.

  10. I like peacocks. They are beautiful, and are related to the Hindu and Buddhist traditions.

  11. I really like peacocks - such amazing colors.

    I know peacocks are the national bird of India. I even wrote a poem about them!

    I have seen very few peacocks in my life. They are such splendid birds, though.

    I don't know if I've seen peacocks in many years...those pictures taken in Charleston may actually have been the last time I saw them!

    Since they are the national bird of India, I keep imagining they are wild, strutting about everywhere.

    Thanks for signing me up. I don't know how I made the mistake. I went ahead and paid for Mr. Linky or whatever I did...but I'll get it figured out by next time.

    Your peacocks sound like the seven white roosters my aunt and uncle had on their Alabama farm. They would come charging at us children whenever we would enter the barnyard!

    I wonder why we don't have more peacocks wandering about in the U. S. I rarely see them anywhere here.

    I do love peacocks though I rarely see them. Their feathers are so beautiful, spread out in all their glory!

    It must be hard for peacocks to judge their distances, etc, with those long floweing feathers!

    I knew that the peacock was the national bird of India but I was unaware of the connection to Buddhism and Hinduism. I need to learn more about these ancient religions.

    They are magnificent birds and look so elegant with their feathers fanned out!
