A Peacock moment

Imagine my surprise- when I was over at my Dad's last weekend,( I normally go to see him every weekend...)
He called me out to the garden and I could tell he wanted me to be quiet- there were two peacocks wandering around in his garden,jumping on his shed roof and his patio. Apparently they have been around the village for a couple of years but he has never had them in his garden before. Never one to miss an opportunity for a photo, I was there!
,He has a mirror at the side of his patio and the peacocks were fascinated trying to peck at it cos they thought it was another one ...I reckon they will make a nice scrappy page at some time in the future. It amazes me how vibrant their colours are and I don't think I've ever been this close to one. According to my Dad they are both males wonder where the girlies are.....

They really are stunning! I can't believe you managed to get a photo of them looking at themselves in a mirror; that's very clever.

How fabulous must that have been. Are they wild in the village or do they belong to someone? The photos will make great LOs.
