Instagram Public Photos with #birdextremefeatures

Indian peafowl. there are quite a few of these in the park. photographing these hightly domesticated dudes is not a problem. getting the right portrait, on the other hand, proves to be quite difficult for me. this photo was taken from behind a bird who’s resting on the ground, with those gorgeous tail feathers strung straight back. not able to fit everything in a frame (did i mention they are big?), i had to sacrifice his outfit in favor of that elaborate headdress.

Rainy day fun. this allen's boy loves a good downpour. he’s always out and about accumulating raindrops or sloshing around on wet leaves. rain is hard to come by in southern california. even though he has a birdbath all to himself, he undoubtedly prefers fresh water coming from the sky.

Thanks for all the wonderful comments on my previous post, lots of comments to catch up on and i will get to them all 😀

one of those nights where i just don’t know what to post. so i went to the folder and chose this one. white-breasted woodswallows from my trip into the kimberley (july). they just bunch up and then preen themselves and each other. they look so content. ..
