While I love this blog, I now pretty much only write on my other two blogs: BirdingBlogs.com and 10,000 Birds - I would love to see you there!

Awesome fun with Peacocks

Last weekend we went out for a rainy walk in one of the local castle parks (Schloß Ambras). I happened to have all my digiscoping stuff with me in the boot of the car from my morning's outing but because of the poor light and rain, I decided to just leave it in the car and enjoy the time with the family (including our little niece).

Anyhow, when the one peacock started displaying and dancing, I really could not resist going back to get my digiscoping stuff.

He was shaking and spinning and doing all he could to impress the little female. Here she is. Does she look impressed to you?
Nah, she didn't look to impressed to me either.

Here is a close up of some of his feather detail. I am really happy with these images, I feel they effectively captured the mood and feeling for me.

All photos taken with a Swarovski Optik STM80 HD, TLS800 digiscoping adapter, Nikon D300s

Happy digiscoping,
Dale Forbes
