Observations about the universe, life, Lausanne and me

Jardin Botanique, Génève. There is no entry fee, and the peacocks run around free. I'll have to return with my DSLR and the macro-lens. This was taken with my new Canon Ixus.


  1. Very Nice.
    I had one of those walk into a computer lab I was working in (long story). Their poop...stains like blueberry jam. Never did got stains out of the carpet.

    Oh yeah, they don't like being caught and they scream like crazy :)

  2. ;) Peacock in the lab - what a nightmare. Although maybe I could roast it in our plasma-torch?

  3. I know that guy, I think... saw him wandering about the garden a couple of times and still not sure why, for the life of me, he doesn't just cash in his chips and go off on a grand adventure... the gate is wide open! I guess I'll never figure out what it is that keeps him there; perhaps a fear of the unknown? Poor chap.

  4. Hey hey, look who's coming out of seclusion! Does that mean there'll be a new post by you soon?

    My guess is that Mr. Peacock stays where the food is - or where the hens are kept ;)
