I shot a political event at a very well to do persons house and they had a few Peacocks roaming around the property. This guy was trying to woo the ladies right before the event started and I got of three shots, thinking of this challenge before he tucked it a way. I totally forgot about it until about 30 minutes before the deadline. I wish I had more to edit it, I would have lightened up the edge feather spots a bit and cloned out the water hose on the left.
Thanks for the comments and votes.

I was wondering where you found the peacock. Never would have guessed at a political event!

Stunning! Epic contrast. I've seen a tutorial featuring something like this I think? Anyways, good job.

Great entry. I love the way the feathers all naturally point towards the head; it creates a very interesting focal point.

great capture on a rare animal really has the wow factor, a little more sharpness and clarity would have seen it 10 so only! a 9
