I'm a patient man, really I am. But as patient as I am, this
peacock gave me quite a trial. He simply would NOT turn and
face me with his beautiful feathers extended. All I could get
was his backside. Then I realized -- a peacock from the front
is a common image. Beautiful, perhaps, but common. How many
have you seen from the other side?

Great shot Gary;would not like to meet you and your 300D in a sauna ;-)

I really like the symmetry in this ....
I've had the same thing happen .. I think peacocks do that on purpose ... they see a camera and get all 'cocky'!

WOW! Terrific shot Gary! Excellent angle!
Wonderful colors and details. Bravo!
Guest 15-Apr-2005 05:49
Oh, hysterically fun ... and so true! His 'behind' view is quite stunning ... I love it! :)

Only you, Gary, would show us the underside of the most beautiful bird around, and have it come out so well. This is just great.
Guest 15-Apr-2005 02:16
I'm sitting here laughing! This is the funniest PaD shot I've seen for a while, as well as being a good shot in and of itself. :-)

Quite risque and provocative.
Or maybe not.
Seriously though, great idea and good capture.
Guest 14-Apr-2005 16:20
This is delightful, hahaha!

Is this peacock actually mooning us?! What an interesting display no matter which side up.
Robin Reid14-Apr-2005 13:53
Right on GW.. very different view. for me as you predicted. Well done by you! A feather in your cap!! ;-)
Guest 14-Apr-2005 13:11
A different perspective of the peacock for sure! I like it. A nice study in lines and texture.
Guest 14-Apr-2005 12:57

Last week I had the luck to walk around a peacock. So his back isn't new for me but I like it very much you made it your PAD. And the shot is great.
Guest 14-Apr-2005 07:18
hahahah I was going to say the same thing, how many times have we seen a peacock from the front? Good job Gary
