This peacock at a wildlife park was very intent on scoring one of a group of peahens who were perched in a nearby tree. He put on a great display for quite some time.

WOW - what a gorgeous photo! It doesn't look real!!! The colors are so intense, and the cropping is just great!

Thanks Ms Puck. Yes the colours are real (just a tiny bit of level adjustment in PP), and I played around with many different crops before settling on this one.

Cheers,Ollie
