Proud as punch!!!

Photo Information
On our recent trip to Seattle, we visited Woodland Park Zoo. It's probably the most interactive zoo i've been to, well, apart from the penguine parade and the lorikeets at Edinburgh Zoo. This peacock was strutting its stuff at the food area. Later on we stumbled across him hiding in behind the Hippo enclosure. Such a bonnie boy!

Lovely shot. Seen this sort of thing lots of times, but seldom as well executed as this. Colour and perfect focus depth.
Best wishes,
