17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Flying beauty

Made this image on a cold winter morning in Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary.I was standing on top of the seat of the rickshaw with the tripod.It was pretty early in the morning and the sun had just come out.This peacock was previously sitting calmly on top of the tree.But suddenly a flock of painted storks (not in picture) flew over its head and it got disturbed.And changed its position by jumping from one branch to another.
