Symmetrical Tail Feathers

The symmetry of the peacock’s tail has been studied, researched and calculated by mathematicians, photographers, doctors, artist and many find it fascinating with its perfect beauty.
peacocks symmetry (1)I am unsure what’s the point of measuring the tail and feathers of the peacock. They are missing out in seeing the splendor of this bird.
peacocks symmetry (2)Only male peacock has colorful large train used in mating rituals and courtship displays. Female has subdued color of brown or gray and with no tail trains.

Isn’t he gorgeous?!

  1. This goes hand-in-hand with my own post on symmetry. You know, the peahen would disagree with you, she is very interested in the longest feathers and just how symmetrical are. Those are her criteria for mate selection 🙂 I, on the other hand, not needing to choose a peacock for my mate, can indulge in the glorious colors and the mesmerizing display regardless of specific geometry. 🙂

    • It was funny when I read the first thing you wrote was about peahens and peacocks. And then your additional symmetries are very interesting read as well as the photos.

      Your criteria is way much better than those mathematicians that measures everything! Indulge away and I am with you on this. ❤

Please share your reflection. Thank you.
