Indian Peafowl in Flight
Photographer: Manas Khan
Location: Ranganathittu, India
Story: 
This photo was taken in the Ranganathittu bird sanctuary, in Mysore, India. This is arguably the largest bird that can be seen in flight. The huge colorful peafowl was perched on a tree branch for a while. Suddenly there was a call from the other side of the river from a fellow mate and it took off in its entire splendor. The riot of the color in its body against the blue canvas was gorgeous to say the least and it was pure joy to capture this bird in flight with the full spread wings.
