    Nice job!

    Peacocks are HARD to get right, the blues tend to want to really blow out on them but you did yours quite well.

    I particularly like your peahens... peahens are such sweet birds.

    Thanks!

    I had fun taking these pics. I was using the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 so that made me move a lot and I had to get quite close to the animals. It wasn't easy to do so without scaring them off but still great fun to be able to interact with them a bit!

    I did have some trouble with the blues and had several tries in PP until I thought I got it right. ;)

    Is there anything anybody thinks I could have done better?
