Malay Great Argus

1/40s, f4.0, ISO 800
This is the Malay Great Argus feathers, I was shooting another bird in the same area as he, when he started making a lot of noise drawing my attention. Then he started expanding his wings and I rushed over to see what was going on and was able to catch him doing a mating dance for the female Argus. I was using my 70-200 nikon lens because it shoots through glass beautifully. Normally not a problem however, he decided to do his dance by the glass, making it hard to get a full shot of him and all his glory. But I was able to get some really good shots. Very, Very little editing done to this photo besides the border. and some curve that is pretty much it. Enjoy, I did shooting the great bird.
