Happy Birthday Bunny!
I was sitting on the ground, snapping away, when a peahen came up on the left side of me. This peacock quickly made his way over, directly to the side of me. At one point his feathers were touching me!!! It was amazing to be there!

Bunny Snow June 01, 2010Donna, This is an amazing portrait of a peacock! It is wire sharp with strong details, like which Kara said my images need. The lighting and sharpness on his head and neck is lovely.
What a lovely birthday present!!!
Thank you. This is inspiring! It gives me something for which to work...next time we go to Austin where the peacocks roam at Green Pastures restaurant.

Nikki McDonald June 02, 2010You got a great expression -- I think he looks very imposing and I would not really want to tangle with him :) Your detail and lighting on the head and especially beak are terrific. #8661254
