Who's that knocking at my door????



This morning when I walked into the living room I had quite the sight. 5 peacocks looking in, with one REALLY looking in. Though they sure can make a mess out of my back patio it's hard not to appreciate the beauty....and comical looks that the peacocks bring.

Whoa! I never saw a peacock up close like that - and I didn't know what it was. Wow. They really have gorgeous colors, and their looks are stern and curious. It's fun to attribute human emotions to them.

I've never seen one so close either - nice shots.

I was glad to get your note (thanks, BTW) - when I got my new computer they had lost all my "favorites" so I had lost track of your blog address. HOpe your spring is going well. T.

Wow! are they gorgeous or what?
I love their loud "screams". A friend thought some woman was being murdered and found out it was the neighbors peacocks. lol

This is my first visit to your blog and I have to say that the photos of these peacocks look like an invasion of aliens!

Oh they are beautiful! What fun to see them like that. We had on for a little while. He was quite the guard dog. Have a great week. Sorry about the ice cream. I was in shock too.

I have to say that if you didn't know this bird it would seem awfully stern! But I'm sure that he's just as cuddly as a kitten and quite sweet! GREAT pics, thanks!

Funny! Peacocks to me always looks like they're about to say something really serious and very important. :-)
Did they want something in particular from you or were they just enjoying the view from the porch? lol

Susan said...

They are so cute with their little serious faces! What a wonderful way to greet the day. Did you give them a treat?

ROFLMBO! I bet you were cracking up! hehe!
How they can be so goofy looking (and even a little bit scary) when they are also so regal and beautiful?

You took some really awesome photos through your window.
I have a feeling that, around your place, there is never a dull moment, and you always receive little surprises....like peacocks peeking through your window.

What did they want anyway?

I think these pics are hilarious. How stern he looks. :-)

On CuteOverload she talks about the disapproving looks bunnies sometimes have.

This peacock has them all beat. He looks so much like a noble from the 17th century. All decked out in his incredible finery, looking disapprovingly at all of us peons.....

Hilarious...a little unnerving with them peeking in the window! They are so very pretty-were they shrieking at the time?
