    This fella trying to charm another female peacock across the fence, that why he open up its feather, but only 2 second is what I have, I just shoot it with f4, I should have change it to f8 to get ready.

    It is also my luck that day, I went to bird park during weekday, early in the morning, so not many people around, the birdie was in a really relax and comfortable enviroment.

    As mentioned, DOF not enough.

    Good composition...bird at the side while filling the frame with what is by far the most interesting element...the feathers.

    A pity about the sharpness though. More detail/texture in the feathers would have made it perfect!

    Thanks erizai for your effort,
    But that is not the original colour of a peacock, I shoot this fella under a canopy.

    Yeah, pity I did not get ready Aperture f8 for it, thanks for your comments, it is a great experience for me, lesson learnt is alway get ready the camera setting for the unexpected.

    Every photograph you see is focused on the feathers, not on the bird. This is why this shot is brilliant. The only thing I would fix is the bottom... just crop out the tan so the whole image is bird and feathers.
