peacocks at the zoo-- the "training wheels" of birding and wildlife photography
Every zoo is pretty much required to have peafowl wandering loose around the place. Since they are brightly colored, highly photogenic, and relatively slow moving, they are ideal subjects for the birding/wildlife novice with a "long" kit zoom! All are out of camera JPEGs, and all are better than the peacock shots from my last visit!
(Definitely should have slowed down my shutter speed to lower my ISO on those last two-- the perils of TAv when moving from fast moving subjects to slow ones. I wasn't expecting the peacock, and wasn't paying attention! Still, not bad for 1000, especially compared with film.)
