Sydney Peafowl

SONY DSCStuck in the house sick today, I hunted through some old images shot at the Sydney Zoo a few years ago. I had a wide variety of head shots of various animals, including todays peacock.

One of the more well known colourful birds, I have always found it funny how many animals have the male being bright and exuberant and the female otherwise plain. Of course the majority of examples of this are to show off and attract a mate.

Shot on the Sony A230, converted from RAW in UFRaw and final edit in Gimp.
