When peacocks strut their stuff!

One thing I definitely love photographing is... birds. And the peacock in 'full bloom' is always going to be of interest when any of us come across their courting, right!
To find one on full display in mating season can be rare however this lovely fellow was discovered while I was walking around the bushland at Cataract Gorge in Launceston. Their displays of plume and guttural sounds, are interesting to witness. 
Without owning a 'birding' lens I struggle to get good sharp images of birds - fortunate for me, peacocks don't flit or move as fast as their flying friends - so loved I was able to capture the glorious colours, the greens and blues, and with such a gorgeous sharpness in the eye.
Good luck and good fortune!
Well known for being a universal symbol of beauty, romance and love, the peacock also represents different meanings to different cultures, including power, strength, confidence, and immortality. Besides their physical beauty, another reason I feel their pull to us is strong. 
While I watched, photographing from every angle known to mankind, this man, did not woo his woman, but he sure kept trying! :) 

 

 

A prolific creative Ann is equally at home, as an avid photographer or visual artist - both allowing her to dabble on the edge of ultimate creativity!
When you don’t find her with a camera or brush in hand you will usually find her traveling somewhere within Australia in her 'ole Hiace, housesitting, or scooting off somewhere on a retreat, keen and eager to share her experience and knowledge of travel and photography!
