Before I became a photographer I had seen peacocks several times. But call it fate or just luck since I developed my skills, the opportunity to shoot this notoriously shy bird up close simply eluded me. I continued scouting and kept an ear open for sightings in Goa but wasn’t rewarded.
On a recent holiday in Hampi, I finally got lucky and was able to take several photographs of these glorious creatures. I waited inside a hide – a camouflaged shelter with a tiny window to observe and photograph. With my tripod and camera, I couldn’t help but feel like a fashion photographer at a high profile fashion show!
