Peacocks in Plenty at Lakshman Sagar, Pali, Rajasthan

I do not find it that unusual to find peacock around. Both my collages had them at the campus, only I was not into photography then! But it has been a long long time since college so when I got to hear to the annoying sound that peacocks make I was rather glad.

However bird photography requires a lot of patience and time and I think I lacked both on this occasion. Still there are a few shots that I clicked and I thought I have to share this unique aspect of the place. This was the time when the peacocks had dropped their feathers. That means I didn’t see any peacocks with with their royal spread. But it meant I could find a few fallen feathers!

This one was though part of the decoration of my room. I took it out in the sun to click a few pictures! But I did find fallen feathers too.

There was a banyan tree in which the peacocks would come to rest for the night. There must have been at least a 100 of them. The one above in the picture came close to my cottage.

Yes Desi Traveler. I agree I am these days crazy about birds of paradise forgetting how beautiful our peacock is!

Thanks Ladyfi.

Niranjan and that was when they had shed their feathers!

It is so tempting to capture those brilliant blues and greens.
