I was sure that the Peacock knew I was there with the camera, so it jumped on the small stone-fence and posed like a model for me (and for kid that were there) – The bushes and flowers in diff. colors made a wonderful iridescent decoration to the scene.

There will be one more surprising Peacock picture… coming-up…

An another excellent portrait of this beautiful and impressive bird. I like this image very well coloured with the bird buttoo with the flowers which arise in the green of the vegetation.

A beautiful portrait of a magnificent royal bird. Peacock proudly enters the jungle flower. Very good quality.

yes, it is a nice idea to take this image when the peacock was in the fence, surrounded d by flowers and their colors. good soft light and framing

It seems that posing for you with their wonderful plumage, a beautiful POV flowers with that environment where the peacocks still renowned for its spectacular color.
A clear image and good light to appreciate every detail.

Another image of this lovely peacock .I like the way it is turning its little head towards the camera. Nice BG with many colored flowers.

Beautiful picture with a very arrogant stance and elegant turkey.
Bello also the surrounding environment.

che incanto quest'esemplare di pavone, un soggetto fotograficamente molto attraente, con colori splendidi ed un portamento molto fiero.
Ma sono molto belli tutti i colori dei fiori che ci sono attorno.
Complimenti per la grande qualità dello scatto.
Un caro abbraccio, buon WE.

This guy really is a show off. But we love him, he can't get enough of the camera, what a perfect model. I like this scene among the lovely flowers. Even still his colours are brilliant in comparison and we get to see a different side of him. I can't wait to see what he does in the next frame. Dancing for you perhaps? :)
Thanks for sharing and I wish you a lovely weekend

The point of view is showing the details and colors of the peacock which seem to pose for the photographer. The vegetation is framing well the bird. The light is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

What an energic peacock that still has vigor to "flirt over the fence" when true with its own harem!
It posed elegantly for your lens!

Must be quite a job for the bird, dragging that heap of feathers around hehehe!
Suffering for the beauty, I think they say...
Good angle on the peacock, showing the bird in all its glory..!
