Cycling Surprise

I came across this peacock doing his mating dance on my morning bike ride in Crandon Park on Key Biscayne. I had to get off my bike to take a picture of it, then I decided to video him on my cell phone. In case you missed it, there’s an iguana in the grass watching the show on the left corner of the frame.

Peacocks are in the pheasant family. They are ground foragers and eat insects; plants; and little creatures like reptiles, amphibians and small mammals.
