These few peacock pictures are from the holy land of Vraj Mandal.
The peacocks are a very intimate part of the Divine ShreeKrishn and ShreeRadha leela. In some way they might belong to the generations of peacocks whose ancestors would have been a witness to Shree Radha and Shree Krishn leelas on this pavitra bhumi thousands of years ago
Peacocks are by nature very shy and hide away from intruders, I feel fortunate to have been able to catch them in the very natural surroundings. Unfortunately due to unplanned development in the holy Braj Dham and with an increase of the monkey population in the surroundings, these beautiful peacocks have dramatically reduced in number.
This is also an appeal to all, not to kill these beautiful birds for recreation or meat. They are as close to Shree RadhaKrishn as Their beloved sacred Cows!
I have selected a few dancing peacock pictures from my vast collection of peacock photos.
Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I have been delighted to photograph and present them before you.
Shreeji Ki Jai Ho!
