Very different kind of shot. You can see his every muscle tensed bracing for the impact.

@Nomad&TG: Thank you, I use a 100-400 L and heres the exif, Shutter Speed 1/200, F 5.6, ISO 400, Exp Bias -.33, Focal length 400 mm.

@Samu: The picture i have posted is of a peahen the female. Hence the difference in color. What you have posted must be a peacock in rufous state and once its an adult it gets all those colors, for peahen its more of an green on the neck and brown on the head combination.

Another one..

@hellstar, that's a lovely capture.
Did you shoot from below or were you level with the bird?

Thank you very much @torqy, i was about 1.5 meters below the level of the owl but the tree was angled towards me , thats why you get the impression that i was shoot at level with the bird.

@anirban
Mindblowing shot man...simply mindblowing.

@sudipto
That is unbelievable! What kind of a moron photographer would even think of it!!!

@Hellstar
Nice catch!

@Extreme_torque
Lovely shots, specially the 2nd n third.

@Samurai
Do you live in a peacock paradise? Looks like you do.

@Redrage
Again loved your color combo there.

Been experimenting with the fill in flash while my friend Dennis was exhibiting his jumping skills..haha.

Nice shot. But I would also like to see any other shot taken around the same time at a similar angle to check out the difference fill-in flash had made.

Well actually here i had placed the flash off my camera, on the right side of this image to just tone down the harsh shadows created by the sunlight hitting him from the left, used the remote wireless triggering of the SB900 unit. will see if i can in the future do a with flash and without flash comparison.

I don't know about that. But colleagues who live next to the office campus tell me that dozens of peacocks can be seen on the top of the office building early morning, sometimes dancing with fully spread out feathers.

Lovely blues. The second and third are post-card stuff.

@TG
The jump shot is good to be in a Nike ad.

So TG, did you get a chance to do any "long" exposures with your new gear? This cams awesome for extreme long exposures. you can head over to Carmel for starry skies!
