A beautiful picture of this indian peafowl. It is possible to clear the small spot of the sensor with PS

Hi Annick
C'est un très beau cliché avec ce beau portrait. Le paon apparait ici sous ses plus beaux atours. La qualité de l'ensemble est parfaite.Le beau Bg rend bien les couleurs de l'oiseau.

Merci et au revoir...JP

Na, You're seeing things again Annick!
Or maybe between the screen and the sensor, it's a huge right-wing conspiracy ;)
I use sensor swabs from photographic solutions myself..
Great capture..but shouldn't that hen be looking left? :}}
