Thank you very much for all the nice feedback everyone - I always appreciate it! Peacocks roam freely at the San Diego Zoo, and frequently offer wonderful photo ops. This one was perched on a low wall, with his tail feathers relaxed and perpendicular to the camera. A perfect opportunity for a study of the beautiful peacock "eye" pattern... #397548
