Peacock Pride by Ian English

At the Auburn Botanic Gardens in Sydney NSW Australia last weekend to get some images for the Gardens In Focus comp and I came upon this magnificent chap. He was putting on a great show however I feel it was for the nearby female and not me :(

    Great detail on the bird. Color is awesome.

  • Thanks so much Rodney. Don’t know how well this would print as some of the colour is out of gamut !!
