If evolution worked in months rather than eons this guy would have been armed and pointing a 12 bore at me but alas it doesn’t and his plumage, while very pleasing to the eye, is only there to impress the Hen and intimidate his competition.
Not as sharp as I would have hoped for but he was a bold handsome fellow and I wasn’t going to pass up the opportunity.

Cornwall tomorrow and for the next week. the internet might not be invented (only joking) but I will try my hardest to keep up to date and if need be, post in bulk on my return!
Peace Peeps! x
