August 14 photo of the day

Ok, this is cheating...a little. I photographed these birds at one of the farms that was open for the lavender festival in July. The peacock and peahen were at the back of their fenced enclosure directly against the fence. The peahen was rather shy and stayed behind the shelter. The peacock tried enticing his mate out into the yard without success. She did show him some love, though. The background was really distracting, so I created a layer with the birds and then added a Gaussian blur filter to drop the background out. There are two other images in this series that you can view on my website.
