I agree with Trekker that both the Peafowl duo and the Hog Badger are great captures. And so is the Blue Pitta; to get a quality shot of pittas usually requires quite some patience. Did you set up a hide?

Also very lucky to see Dholes! In my experience not easily encountered in HKK.
Looks like you had a great time there!

Fantastic selection of species there and well photographed!
Were the dholes skittish when they saw you?
The poor male Peafowl doesn't seem to be impressing those two females who are looking the other way too much!

We stumbled upon the Blue Pitta by surprise when driving. Late afternoon it flushed off the road and perched very close to the car long enough to take a series of shots before it disappeared.
