How about you? Any unusual happenings in your July 4th holiday? Anything out of the
ordinary, like perhaps coming face to face with a Peacock? Did it happen to you? As you can see,
it did for me. Twice in a span of two days, I came within a few feet of one of nature's
most magnificent birds. Actually, I was a bit awestruck, as I studied it's brilliant
colors and exceptional design.
As if intentionally placed, I discovered this bird sitting on the hood of a blue pickup truck
at a nearby farm, that I visited with my family on Saturday. Proudly he sat there, so still that
I almost walked right past him.
He stared directly at me, and I slowly moved close enough to the car, to lean on it and stare right
back at him. All I could think of as I took in his exquisite beauty, was that God certainly is an incredible designer and artist. So many brilliant colors and perfect designs covered every
inch of this bird.
Today, again on different farm visit, we encountered another one of the proud, strutting birds, in a
big open meadow.
I used my zoom lens, and captured a close up of his uniquely created plume.
There are so many special celebrations for this July 4th holiday. I assure you, that I am probably the only blogger, that shares her Peacock encounters, instead of festive and patriotic subject matter. But, it may add a smile to your day. I do hope it helps you see things that add wonder and amazement to your every day, whether it is a holiday or not. I marvel at God's creations.
The reason for our local farm visits, were because our daughter and family were spending a few
days visiting us, from their home in the Midwest. Treasured moments for sure.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Wishing you joy and wonder in the week ahead.
