I had always heard, that when it rains peacocks dance. I had always been curious to find out if this was true.
So a few days ago on a rainy day, I took my camera to pay some peacocks a visit.
And then I waited as the beautiful creature sat there in all his majesty.
Every time he moved, I felt my heart fill with excitement, ‘He’s going to dance!’
But it kept raining, and I kept waiting with my jacket over my camera to keep it from getting wet.
I had a feeling he didn’t know about the dancing-in-the-rain-peacocks legend, and was quite close to sharing some stories with him.
Even though he enjoyed posing for the camera showing off his beautiful feathers, and came very close to breaking into a dance I’m sure, this peacock did not dance – not for this photographer, not on that rainy day.
And while I had started to doubt if he even knew how to dance, the lady with the crown made her entrance. . .
. . .and he showed me that he might not know the rain dance, but he still did know love.
