The Ride Home

On the way home this particular peacock came out of the dry creek bed to graze.
Sitting on a bench looking up I thought a deer, with all the crunching sounds of dead leaves.

To my delight it was of course a huge surprise.
No backyard bird like this one at home.

Sassy perhaps a bit bossy, doing a strut along the walkway later that evening.

On the highway in route homeward, this was another bizarre moment.

Coming home from a very hot desert, this is what I see.
It seemed to be a commercial farm which sell their flowers to nurserys.
Rows and rows of all colors, no sun, overcast, and damp.
But it didn't matter, I was there.

Back to desert life I spotted a lizard coming out of a unused campfire ring.
He was not in a hurry, eating his way across the desert slowly he went.
I thought he had a lot of personality and gusto!

The parrot was in a large cage on one of our stops home.
He seemed to be very nurtured, and happy.
After viewing my photos at home, it appeared like he was smiling.
I can't believe it came out because I took photographs through the wire cage.

His fluffy soft yellow head was vivid.
He was squacking a lot.
But so do I.
Somethimes you always get what you need.

I have never seen a rabbit  STRETCH before!

Have you?

Many rabbits were making their appearance.
Cats and dogs stretch, I was baffled by the morning stretching.
If the light had been a bit better, I could of got more detail.
No complaints here, it was wonderful.
He made my day.

Oh these are great pictures - all of that colour. The wonderful blue of the peacock and then that gorgeous field of flowers - what a sight that must have been and then the lovely yellow of the parrot. Wonderful shots.
And no, I've never seen a rabbit stretch before - he looks deformed.
