Female peacock today with her just hatched family, we were visiting a bird sanctuary in the Malverns when we spotted these and they run fast believe me, the wardens were soon behind us as they captured the family to put them in a safe place away from predators so this was our only chance of any pics glad I got one at leastWink many thanks for all visits to my PF I am most grateful for your comments and thank you all very muchSmile

not my best day yesterday - onward and upward is my aim but whenSad
