Default More shots from the Arboretum

#1




#2




#3 Back in the 1800's, a successful local businessman who owned most of the land around here imported a pair of peafowl from India. They've multiplied over the years and call this place home. Several have escaped, and you can see them roaming freely on the streets of neighboring cities of Pasadena and Arcadia. I heard that they only display their tail during mating season, which I don't think is this time of year.




#4

Thank you all. #2 is my favorite too. There were lots of ducks in the water, so I situated myself where the water looked interesting and waited for a duck to swim by.

Thanks Tullio, interesting you commented on the exposure of #1. I took 2 shots with different metering. The other was slightly more over exposed and you can see his face better, but I opted to post this darker one. I guess I chose wisely.

I haven't seen the other shot but I do believe you chose the best one. I'd guess the rocks are over exposed on your other shot and perhaps some of the bird's body. This is just right.

Here's the other one. The difference is subtle but I don't see the same details in his feathers. Maybe it's also slightly out of focus. Now that I look at both, I'm not sure which one I like anymore....
