Grey Jungle Fowl at tadoba

This is such a beautifull bird and I have tried several times to get a shot of it. Those who have tried to photograph this bird know how difficult it is, since it never stays in the place, as soon as you stop your vehicle it runs. I got lucky when these 2 (male & female) where busy feasting on the sweet Mahua flowers that fall down from the trees in Tadoba. Mahua flowers are eaten by most animals and birds and the locals collect it to make a local liqour. Photographed early morning at ISO 3200 on nikon d800 + nikkon 200-400 vr + bean bag..
