We had the pleasure of going to Denver for our spring break. What a blast. One of our favorite spots to visit is the zoo, and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. As in perfect summer weather. It was that warm.
One of my favorite animals at the zoo are the peacocks. They pretty much have the run of the place. (Well, that and the geese which leads to some interesting stand offs.) I love watching them strut around the park and get into all kinds of interesting places. As you can tell, they don't shy away from perching on fences near the animal enclosures. They even get into the enclosures. The best part is I was able to catch one of the peacocks in take off mode. I'm always amazed when the focus and lighting work so well on such spontaneous shots. Enjoy!
