The peacock, though it is often used by creationists as an argument against evolution, is a great example of how it works. It has been proved that peahens will choose males with brighter colors. Therefor, if they continue to only mate with the brightest males, then only the brightest males will pass on their genes, and then only the brightest of that generation will pass on their genes. Over time brighter and brighter birds emerge until you have something as flamboyant and unnecessary as the peacock. Because of this, the alleles for the less bright peacocks will fade away (natural selection).
