In the words of Anthony Douglas Williams, "When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul." Those words ring true in the concept I try to convey through my nature photography. In the eyes of an animal there is so much more than a creature existing; there is love, passion, ferocity, humility, humor... and in the case of this Peacock, curiosity. I was able to get up close with a group of the birds and as I took their portraits, studying them, I could see that they were also curious about me.
