Hello Friends,

Peacock displaying its full plumage this morning. Could see a lot of females by the way, probably waiting for courtship.

The original 100% is a little fuzzy as I had to react quickly to grab the shot.

To all fathers, like me, I wish an excelent day together with the ones you love.

Warm Regards,

Roberto.

Beautiful Bird. Love them.

A little trick in PS if you have it.

Reverse USM...start about 30 amount and 60 radius and go up or down from there :>)))

I just had to pull a pic out of the haze of the Shuttle Launch with it. I am not 100% pleased, but close as I can get it with my limited knowledge.

Hi Gale,

Thank you very much for the tip.

Worked wonders on the picture. The colors and the details just popped.

Would love to see the pic of the Shuttle Launch.

Regards.

Looks good to me. I don't think I've ever seen a peacock submittel on here before? Love the colors and this bird doesn't show the ragged feathers that many do. good choice and good shot.

Gordon, Frank and Flew,

Thanks for the comments. Had a bit of luck today, as the peaacocks were cooperative.

Lot of females around and this male could not resist showing up its feathers I guess.

Hugs to all

Roberto
