From our childhood most of us have heard the story that

when peacock weeps on seeing his ugly legs during dancing the tears are picked up by the peahen and becomes pregnant.

When the peacock was dancing peahen observed the peacock from all the angles.On finding him suitable she sat in front of him. The peacock mounted the female and went for the CLOACAL kiss.The mating lasted for only nine seconds.

While the pair was busy in mating ,another peacock was very inquisitive to know what was going on and went quite close to them from the back.

The PEAFOWLS mate as other birds or animals do. As the mating last from 6 to 13 seconds at the most, it requires lot of patience and time to record the mating.
