Indian Peafowl - hard to believe this is a bird

In any book on bird photography, the Indian Peafowl ought to deserve a chapter on its own. It is such a unique, fantastic bird, there is no obvious way to do justice to it in photographs. I tried several options but settled on this psychedelic treatment as the one I liked the best. Its not hard to imagine that this must have a hypnotic effect on the peahens! 14th June, 2008.

This spectacular Indian subcontinent endemic is The National Bird of India.
