Today is the first day of Spring, and it has been a windy, but otherwise pretty day. I just want to share a few quick pics of mine with you and wish all of my readers a beautiful and flourishing spring!

And Looky Here!
Anyone care to dance?
What's around this corner?
"Aw, the gate's closed...how do I get home?"
Early this evening, Karo and I were relaxing on our front porch, when Karo spotted this beautiful bird walking through a neighbor's front yard. A neighbor who lives a couple of blocks over from us raise these birds, along with White Peacocks and Guineas. From time to time, one or more of these birds manages to get loose and stroll the neighborhood. We got lucky, ran in the house for two cameras and went to work ourselves. These are a few of best pics we were able to acquire. Unfortunately, he didn't spread his tail for us-maybe next time!
This lovely creature is what I believe to be an "Indian Blue Peacock". It is the National bird of India. The male Peacock is actually referred to as the Peafowl, best known for its extravagant tail. The tail is usually displayed as part of the bird's courtship strategy.
Hope you enjoyed the quick spring pics. All photos were taken by me in my back yard and on the street where The KardKorner is located. It is now 76 degrees with a mild breeze in Fort Worth. Thank you for visiting...come back y'all!!!
