I asked over on Facebook, what is the most exotic animal crossing you've ever encountered? Deer? Moose? Armadillo?
Try a Peacock. Actually, try two of them.
It wasn't as if I was in the middle of the...wait, where do Peacocks even live? Where is their "wild?" Not a rainforest, although with as much rain as we've had here, that could be debatable. Not the desert or frozen tundra. I've only known them to wander the man-made temperate zone of the local city zoo.
Anyhow, they strutted their stuff across the neighborhood road, clueless, or careless to the rest of us. The day before I waited for ducks to cross the road. A mother and two ugly ducklings.
I wonder what today has in store.
