This was shot in Karanji lake in Mysore amidst all birds in the Aviary. The dog did not seem to be bothered at all by them or the noises. We apparently spend almost half our lives with our eyes closed (literally, sleep+blinking). Wonder how much a dog does?
The Indian Peacock. It truly deserves to be the National Bird. Its majestic tail, closed, ready to be opened. By the way the chains in the background are not to protect you from the birds, but the other way around. For more info -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peacock
