Indian Peafowl - hard to believe this is a bird

    Newer Older

    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.

      The only thing harder to believe is I'm only the NINTH flickrer to comment on such a dramatic and beautiful photograph! I guess it's hard to take an ugly shot of this bird....maybe that's why it's been so overlooked! SPECTACULAR
