OUR WORLD, Nature Notes & Wild Bird Wednesday - On the Strut

The imminent fire threat has passed
and I can now turn my attention to pleasanter things.
Thank you to all of you who cared what became of me 
during that stressful time.

A pair of peacocks strutting their stuff on my water tank.

Her Ladyship with her brilliant green neck
and rather drab coronet

his Lordship, magnificent even without his showy tail

together they make quite a pair

at the moment herself is sitting on a huge set of eggs
threatening a population explosion.

The older male cohabiting with us,
has become quite tame and comes up when I feed the
chickens and eats out of my hand.

It is rather nice to be feeding the chickens in their cage
with a peacock on one side and my dog on the other,
both waiting for their share.

Life is GOOD!
