With my camera I viewed him as a target of opportunity...as, evidently, he did me!

I love this image. It is fun and funny, and the abstract-ish composition is outstanding, talk about leading lines! Great geometry, great balance, cool shot.

flowerlike symmetry, I like the contrast. If you are going to try out a skunk, a long lens is recommended! Well done on this, abstract, but I was able to recognize it, good subject for black/white.

Even from their "ugly" side they're still impressive subjects.
This is so typical of the many animal shots I get... from the rear. :-(

A unique point of view that works very well, Dave !!! I have always witnessed the other side but never this angle. Nice capture and I love the processing.

Isn't it amazing one side is meant for show and the other is all business? So many things are that way it makes you wonder how people see you too.

I love the composition and processing, it's a unique perspective and well taken. This is wonderful, thank you for sharing! S-

Dave, Delightful and chortly. You'll each remember the other. Took me three glances to figure it out; clever title. Smooth and visible texture in the feathers is very well done; and the fuzz at the bottom looks like frozen methane. The peacock has spoken. Matt
