The blue peacockcomes originally from India but for centuries have been introduced to virtually every continent on the planet because of their beauty and tameness. Peacocks are male peafowls. These colorful creatures boast impressively sized and patterned plumage that they fan out for display purposes. Peafowls are not aggressive birds making them ideal subjects for photography.
This image was shot with a Canon EOS-1D Mark IV with a EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens at 70mm. I was able to get quite close and only needed 1/100sec shutter speed to capture a tack sharp image.
