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.

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!

great catch! I've also never had any luck with the peacock opening it's feathers :(

As mentioned, DOF not enough.
Thanks knoxknocks,
Sometimes we just have to wait.....those guy in NatGeo wait for years for 1 shot.....we only wait for days.
Wish you good luck mate!

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.
