What is your idea of fun on a Sunday? Lazying around, relaxing?? I went to a trek/outing to a nearby hill, Vetal Tekdi, and look what I found there 🙂
The hill gives a nice view of the Pune city but thats not the main attraction of the location. This is….
The place is filled with peacocks. One ought to have a minimum of 400mm reach on the lens to be able to capture these beauties. I had a 55-200 on me. I must admit, the shots were difficult. Not enough light, some camera shake, and yes, a lot of cropping.
We shifted locations, and we got some more shots.
To part, I ll share a photo that mesmerizes me for the camouflage. Hope you find the peacock in there.
Incidentally, the Peacock is considered as the national bird of the country, my country, India, and today, its the 70th Independence Day too.
Lovely shots and I could spot the camouflaged peacock in the last one. The blue is beautiful. Perfect for the day.
Glad you liked them 🙂

Lovely clicks of the peacock playing peek-a-boo 🙂
Such a beautiful gallery. Finding such beauty in Pune give even more credits.
To buy a 55-200mm lens is my wish 🙂 I hope it will be fulfilled one day 😀
Thanks for visiting my blog. Hope you find it worth.
55 -200 mm is a nice lens, have a look at 18-140 too. It’s a sharp lens.
This one is superb Kaustav. Great work champ. Where did you see him?
Thanks a lot Tara. I found him strutting his feathers at Vetal Tekdi, Kothrud.
