Peacock Show-off!

The little show-off!  Imagine how it must feel to open-out those lovely feathers.   I was on hand with the 70-200mm f/4 to catch this moment.  I thought of framing the bird closer then normal so focus in on the brilliant blue.  On the post-processing side, I used a little Topaz Clean; it can make feathers and fur very dynamic.  Personally I like to reduce the effect by applying a Gaussian blur to a duplicated layer.

They say that if you fall in love with avian photography you never go back; they have so much variety and life.  A lifetime of chasing them, of gazing on their beauty; no camera can really portray such beauty.
