Blue Peafowl

Here is a photo of a Blue Peafowl (Pavo cristatus). I shot the photo in 2016 when I lived in Reinfeld for a while.

I thought I upload some photos that my mother took while new years midnight fireworks. She also created a video that is sadly recorded upright, but it’s not too bad and shows some of the loud fireworks we saw. But I assume you are happy as I am that it is now more silent.
