Peacock Head Close-up

Peacock, Pavo cristatus.

Male Indian Peafowl with iridescent blue and green plumage.

He was incredibly tame, eating crisps out of people's hands. At times he came too close to focus on. Here, he's leaning back here a bit so I could get a sharp shot ;o)

Photo taken at The Butterfly House, Anston, Sheffield, South Yorkshire.

 

Camera: Nikon D300

Lens: Cosina 28-210mm f/4.2-6.5 Aspherical

 

I use my photos as inspiration and reference for my paintings which can be seen at:
