I recently returned to Lake Solano to hunt peacocks with my camera. After some research, I discovered that mating season begins in spring and hopefully I would get an awesome shot or two.
In the above photo, the peacock was in a tree limb atop a small hill. Despite having 45mm-200mm zoom equipped, I had to manuever up the hill and around tree limbs between me and my subject. Thankfully it was not a serious climb and the peacock was content to stay on the limb.
I successfully climbed the hill and walked around the peacock carefully and with some distance as to not startle the bird as I approached. It was quite a sight: dappled sunlight coming through the tree branches lighting the peacock's tail.
