Birds

IMG_0605

This peacock did not want to be photographed. I've got lots of bad pictures of moving birds; at least this one was slow enough that he's *in* the photo...

That's a lovely picture - it reminds me a bit of the Winter Garden picture...
Thanks! It is a bit Secret Garden, or would be if the grass through the gate were a bit less scrubby, I think.
At least peacocks look good even from their backside...

I understand completely. I've plenty of pics of blurred heads, and not just of birds. :-)
Every cat I've owned knows exactly when the shutter goes. I'm glad your persistence paid off.

I covet peacock feathers--or at least the colors.

As for the pic, I quite like it. There's something about the peacock walking away, seen from the other side of the gate...hmmmm, I sense the beginning of a story!

I know what you mean! Wombat and I both wrote stories about one of her photos which was another view through a gate. There's something about that transition, and that sense of enclosure. Add one peacock, and you have a story!
What a perfectly beautiful setting. I love the iron gate, the wooden doors, the stone wall, and the greenery. And the peacock!
It was lovely - a country house that's still lived in by the family, and shows their character. It's not in perfect shape, but it is beautiful in its own way.
