"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."

Thanks, Min. It was the geometry that elicited the shutter squeeze...the caption came after reflection!

"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."

Hi, Piet,
I had shot a series of his glorious, head-on, spread-tail display and it seemed that he turned this aspect to me by way of telling me "enough is enough!" . The geometric symmetry was too good to pass up!

This is so typical of the many animal shots I get... from the rear. :-("

Sounds like an interesting thread...""Northbound Animals...Viewed from the South"
I've a number of examples of such images also...

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.
Dave


Thanks, Dave.
I, too, was struck by the contrast between the "approaching view" and the "departing view"

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-


Thank you, Steve,
Sometimes it takes a moment to realize that this view is rendered in full color!

Thank you, !att,

"The peacock has spoken!"

I like that!
