Alpha Female


    Alpha Female

    This illustration is about the concept of Alpha female. 
    In nature, only the male peacocks have colorful feathers while the peahens are smaller than the males and not nearly as bright as them. The peacocks use their colorful plumage to perform for the potential mates. When a male courts a female, he spreads out his tail feathers to display his colors and eyespots fully for her to impress.
    But I wondered what if, the peacocks ever came across the queen of samba festival, and she has the bigger feathers in more bright flashing colors, what would they do?
