Pretty much out of the camera image. Sometimes you get lucky.

Edit (3/30/2007):

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I'm glad even a simple photo of a bird like this can make it as a daily deviation.

amazing...I have never been able to capture a shot of one standing still w/its plumage showing!

Such a pretty bird. I can only take credit for being there. ;-)

This is so oddly, yellow. I'm used to peacock pictures having the green tinge to them.

And it probably works so well for the symmetry of it all. Especially his head.

A lot of people tend to shoot cold for all birds. Just got to play with white balance I suppose. I did have the benefit of shooting him on a nice sunny day too though :-)

I wasn't going to read all the comments but I'm sure someone else has said this...I love photos like this. Ones that go against a lot of rules of photography, like rule of thirds and simplicity...and still create wonderful images. I like the colour changes to. The blue makes it. Nicely done.

Thanks. Remember rules are often suggestions. Symmetrical compositions can be just as effective as those that obey the rule of thirds.

But thank you for the insight. I am still happy something like this can get so much attention, because it is overly simple. Just a pretty bird, but still one of my favourites.

True. I think most photos involving perfect symmetry tend to be boring tho. But this is amazing. I like it a lot.

I took a photo that also creates symmetry but (I don't think) looks boring. It's called snow...let me know what you think :)
