Who's a pretty boy then? :)

Lovely detail Ken - Pitter is right about the eye colouring.

Very nice, Sury. I especially like the cockerel. Great details and colour in the plumage. :)

Thank you Andy.

Peafowls in wild. There was a ostentation of peafowls and that was one elusive group. I was running like a man
possessed following the lead of a farm help (from my friend's farm) trespassing who knows how many farms. :lol:
I was cutting a sight running wild, gasping for breath while my hand was getting tired holding A900 + 70-400 in 25oC
weather.
I think this is a Peahen and I was about 500 meters or so away trying to move with stealth.

Andy, Yes she did. I had to go through the barbed wire you see there to get these shots.

I like the pheasant caught in mid stride. Lovely colors in all of the images. I might have gone so far as to it an ostentation of ostentatious peafowls :D

Vacation with Sury. You go from a relaxing boat trip to a cross country foot race against birds. :) And btw, nice photos.
