Nature is generous when it comes to beauty and this is never reaffirmed than when you cast your eyes on the gorgeous peacock. The only thing that the female species may have against Mother Nature is that she bestowed the beauty to the male of the species rather than the female, as is the norm. A peacock is a sight to behold with its colorful appearance, while the peahen, its consort is a remarkably colorless and plain creature.
Have you ever seen a peacock? The lovely color combination of luminous blue and green along with all the shades in between is almost enough to make even the most artistically limited among us to wish that we were artistically inclined. The graceful neck of the peacock and the multiple stranded comb on the head is the beginning of the loveliness of the bird. Then there is the blue and green luminous body that gleams and changes color when the light falls on it. But this is not the end of the good looks of the peacock; the whole thing is made even prettier with the plumage.

The peacock is endowed with a lot of beauty and apart from all the lovely features; it is the lovely color, formation and design of the feathers that stays in our mind. When you look at the feathers of a peacock, you are almost inclined to think that it has a depth due to the dark center, which is surrounded by the luminescent colors. The sight of a peacock proudly (who can blame this lovely bird for having pride in its looks?) is something that will leave you fascinated. The body of the peacock has many colors that also could have a bit of brown or earthy colors in it but is largely composed for blue.
As birds go, peacocks are quite huge but this in no way deters their beauty. They have a nice neck and a balanced body but what remains in your mind is the tail that is composed of feathers. The tail drags behind the peacock touching the ground in its abundance as the peacock saunters. This lovely bird is known to lift this tail, spread it out like a halo, and dance with grace when the mood strikes. It is believed that peacocks break into a dance of joy when it is about to rain.
Though the peacock is known for the immense beauty of its looks and the way it dances, it is no lightweight. Can you imagine that this pretty bird is the natural predator of snakes? It is true; peacocks can attack, kill and eat snakes. This is a sight that is rarely forgotten once you witness it. Peacocks also come in a white variation though this one does not stand out that much in terms of beauty when compared to the colorful species.
While the lovely peacock is a bird that is worth looking at and a sight that is indeed very enjoyable, but it is not a bird that has a good voice. In fact, if you hear the noise of a loud and often irritating peacock first, you will be hard put to believe that such a horrible sound can come out of such a beauteous creature. Well, we never said that Mother Nature does not have a sense of humor, did we?
All said and done, a peacock is a beautiful sight that can make you want to keep on looking at it. Whether it is the way the eye is shaped, or the body is colored or the way the tail feathers are so beautiful.
