I was lucky enough to capture this peacock at Dehiwela zoo in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It was shot through a metal fence, fanning its feathers in a proud display for all watching.

Peacocks are magnificent birds, like nothing else that walk this earth. They have a sense of charm and beauty that cannot be denied, especially when on show like this.
