A Peacock's Tale

Have you ever noticed how a peacock's tail feathers get all the attention? Sure, they're colorful, and they are his defining feature, but look at this guy's beautiful eye. Do you think when he's strutting around the yard with the peahens, he has to say things like, "Uh, ladies, I'm up here"?
