Ben Huberman challenges us to show a scene of breathtaking extravagance: “In your photo this week, share something unabashedly ornate — where it’s clear that the creators pulled no stops and went all out.”
For sheer colour and show stopping grandeur, the peacock tops it all.

He really is beautiful Liz!
Our Creator is the most creative….Beautiful shot Liz!!
Definitely! Perfect photo for the challenge.
Thanks Eliza, isn’t it such a showy creature! The contrast of colour and design is just so extraordinary. … All that posing and yet to see them up in the sky. Wings stretched – that’s something else!
Clever interpretation – he is one showy bird 🙂
Thanks Jude. Yes ‘showy’ fits the bill. Love it when they grandstand for the ladies :). I’ve seen the Reggianus Bird of Paradise displaying, but still not a patch on the peacock.
He certainly does, every one of those feathers is an ornate masterpiece.
The perfect bird for this challenge! Well done, Liz.
Hard to top this one, for the ornate challenge. Magnificent! 🙂
Thanks Sylvia – magnificent they are!
Wonderfully intricate…nature is the best artist💕
True and so wonderfully diverse 🙂
