Soo wishing I had a bigger (than 3x) zoom ( on my fuji finepix A500 compact) when I saw this amazing sight high in a tree on an early knoydart walk…. !

This fine peacock was performing his leisurely morning ablutions up there on his giddy roost about 30 ’ above me which mainly involved his head being under his wing for large chunks of time.. so I was really lucky to get this…

See other knoydart shots for more detail of this amazing area, like the series of 3 pics on heartbeat ridge , perfect anchorage
and morning gems.

    great handling of lighting!! that was a tough shot im sure, and what a find..lucky!! glad you took advantage of it

  • thanks so much everyone ! yes chris I did get a crick in my neck – it was just so gripping watching him preen and ruffle his feathers and and check and recheck his wingpit … teehee.. then of course he flew down to show off to his mate in front of a blossom laden tree..
