A few days ago downtown lover wondered aloud whether peacocks could be found in the wild. I answered positively but in truth wasn't quite sure.
Here in Macedonia, they can be found on the money
and on trees
and just plain out and about.
If you play them right, they will spread for you
If you're really gentle they let you come very close.
But in reality this is a very unpeacocky country. Modest, warm and mind nubmingly beautfiul, it wins the heart effortlessly. I'll do it a favor and spread a little fan for it right here. All these photos were taken over the course of two days with foul photo-weather.
