A Dash of Blue

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.

Cheers!!
