It's tough to compete with a peacock for an imaginative outfit. It looks like a lovely day in Oeiras JM. I'm liking that accuweather gadget!
High regards to you Sir!

A handsome peacock waiting for the clouds. In India we say that they start to dance when the clouds show up.

If it stays in the shade, it won't climb on your car and leave a pile there.

Gine said...

I don't know much about peacocks, but they sure are pretty...we have a few in south Florida in local parks but they're rather skittish...looks like you got pretty close to this one!

Arija said...

Peacocks are such spectacular birds!

These birds are fabulous. Have we seen those blue tiles (?) in the background before? :)
Your comment about making original comments made me laugh, I don't know how many times I've done the same thing!
