This is my next photo from the Wilpattu National park in Sri Lanka. If you like a "fasade" of peacock you can see this view in WS version.

J'aime beaucoup le titre qui accompagne cette photo.Il est tout de même éblouissant ce volatile et je suis content de voir son mauvais côté pour une fois.

The fan like structure of the peacock's tail is very apparent from this point of view. The relatively tight crop enables us to concentrate on the subject, whilst the dark background also helps. Fine technical presentation.

Interesting and not normal view of the majestic peacock specie. Usually images are of the front side which reveals the peacock's unique feather patterns and colors.
Your view focuses and reveals the peacock's spine structure rather than the front colors.

It certainly is an impressive creature also from this angle. And indeed backsides of those plumes give more contrasty view agains green background.

fine two pictures with the portrait of peacock. Nice theme about the nature from Sri Lanka. Well done photos.
Have a nice evening.

I'm starting to wonder, this is the second picture now featuring the back side?? :o haha You know what though, it's different than the traditional, and I like the variation. Plus, you did provide that in the WS, so everything's good. :)
Fascinating species, they sure do put on quite a display of color and form...even when they're running away! A nice, tight framing helps enhance the plumage and pattern. A somewhat minimal shot...but effective, amusing and interesting just the same. Now you have us guessing which creature will come next...hmmm, perhaps some roadrunners? hehe Have a great day my friend. Take care.
Best wishes from the heater,
My word, how do you survive those freezing temperatures...I hope the world brings with it some warmth from the arrival of the Olympics.

a completely unusal peacock shot. For the first time I see a photo of this bird from this angle and enjoyed it uniqueness. Sharp. Perfect light on it. A mic one as a photograph. Tfs.

I never came to an idea to capture peacock from the back. Excellent idea, superb photo. The details and textures are in superb light, the symmetrical arrangement is excellent.

nice the view as the presentation of the back of the peacock, with its open feathers to looks great.I like the good and charmy scene of the carefree bird.

What a great idea and a great moment to capture! You’ve taught me a lesson here too, I once spent hours trying to capture a peacock at Johnstown castle in Wexford, but just to annoy me, he kept turning his back to me everytime he fluffed up like this, while I wanted to get the colourful side. You show really well here that the darkside of the peacock (love that title!!) can be just as cool looking as the front. Really nicely done, and this makes a fascinating and very different shot.
Thanks as always

this must be a very rare peacock picture, I don't remember having seen "the dark side of the peacock" before:)(marvelous title!) I like how you placed the peacock at the centre of the frame with its splendid tail open but invisible to us. It looks so eerie as the green tones of its tail merge with the background. It's movement adds to the eeriness and fascination of the scene. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

You could have titled "Dark Side of the Moon" for an obvious reason; the peacock seems to disapprove of our closeness!
Nice mirror symmetry indeed!
