You are unlikely to get this close to a peacock but this image does give you an idea of what it might be like. Fortunately, peacocks are not very active. They spend a lot of time posing and strutting. However, their beaks are sharp and pointed and they can and will give you a sharp peck if you get too close. This type of photo was taken using a telephoto lens. The blurry background is called "bokeh" (bouquet) and is a frequent subject of conversation among professional photographers.
