A dull Sunday, drizzly rain - and a new camera that begs to be played with.
Don't know what I expected to see when I set off for a drive. Heading to town I was delighted to come upon neighbours causing a traffic jam.
Coming home, the same neighbours were moving sheep.
Nothing unusual about either of these where I live. But having to stop to allow a peacock to nonchalantly walk across the road is very unusual. One of the reasons I wanted this new camera was to get the increased zoom, to get a photo of the usually so elusive peacocks. They live in the wild and like any other wild birds, are cautious and suspicious of people. This one was further along the road from where I usually see them, so perhaps it doesn't belong to the wild flock.
Before I went into town I'd gone to do a little job for my son. The cows were on a little rise above me and were as interested in what I was doing as I was in them. So I got a few cow portraits. There's one cow in the herd that always seems to be there every time I point a camera at them. Sure enough, there she was again.
And she wasn't about to move.
This lovely girl was also striking a pose for me.
Number three was pretending to ignore me but I know she was aware that I was there.
