such magnificence

img_1921Who could believe I could be sitting with two adorable friends, drinking a cup of earl grey tea and munching on carrot cake  and have this magnificent bird parading on a few feet away from us, amazing.  I have never seen a peacock with its tail feathers “up”  strutting his stuff and rattling his feathers in a vibratory fashion.  Obviously a mating ritual, he stood so tall and proud, his irridescent feathers gleaming in the sunshine, my heart lifted and fel joyful to see such exuberant colouring, however the peahen was totally oblivious………………    Seems so different in the “human” world. img_1899_2
