    Default Peacock...

    Attached Images Attached Images
    Dottie and I went to the rookery at Gatorland this morning. This Peacock was perched high on one of the tower for the Zip Line over the alligator breeding pond. I am not sure if it is a captive bird or one of our feral population that has take up residence at Gatorland. Comments and critique welcomed and appreciated. Thank you for viewing.

    Well exposed, sharp, the 'crown' shows well against the sky.

    I do find the perspective a bit of challenge however. It has changed the proportions of the bird enough that the body dominates the image, downplaying the wonderful head they have. A less steep angle would have been more flattering.
