Weekly Photo Challenge: Oops!

OOPS!’

Meet Terry Turtle, a fine young fella

He’s looking for some friends

It’s not long before some turn up

And round and round they wend……

IMG_2024But Terry has his eye upon one lass in particular

He likes her shell and fine back feet

And wants her perpendicular!

What happens next I won’t describe

It might be impolite

But what Genevieve the Guinea fowl sees…..

It gives her quite a fright…..

"Oh my goodness gracious me You simply won't believe it Avert your eyes birds fair and fowl You just could not conceive it!!"

“Oh my goodness gracious me
You simply won’t believe it
Avert your eyes birds fair and fowl
You just could not conceive it!!”

 

Peter Peacock heard her squawks and turned his head to the right

And what he saw down in the pool was really quite a sight!

Peter shouted over to his mate who was sitting on a pole

Paul

Paul

Paul took advice and turned away

To ponder population control!

Another peacock with an eye for some fun

Ran over towards the pond

But what he saw made him flee to his perch With buried head he would not respond!

But what he saw made him flee to his perch
With buried head he would not respond!

And all the birds both fair and fowl

They took on Gen’s advice

They cast their eyes down to the floor

And thought of all things nice!

(Did you ever see this view of a peacock?)

(Did you ever see this view of a peacock?)

Warren Woodchuck Woodchuck Duck (Had to say that twice for the rhyme)

Said he’d brave the water

But when he got there he surely saw Some things he should'na oughter

But when he got there he surely saw
Some things he should’na oughter

 

Oh Terry Turtle you saucy beast You've had your wicked way And now you're hitching a ride back home I don't know what to say!

Oh Terry Turtle you saucy beast
You’ve had your wicked way
And now you’re hitching a ride back home
I don’t know what to say!

That’s All!

See Ya xx

Quick update…I have just realised (told by my dearly beloved) that Terry is a terrapin!!!

Ah well!

Smallest Peacock (Küçük Tavuskusu)

So…the last of my peacock photos today will introduce a small yet perky peacock from Turkey! ( ah the poetry of my words almost bring tears to one’s eyes!)

Podney Peacock just decided to 'go for it'!

And her is the object of his affections, though sadly she is Ponar's bit of fluff!! Ponar being the Top peacock in the area!

Second Best is Still Good-Honest Pahana Peacock!

So yesterday I showed you Ponar Peacock…who was definitely king of all he surveyed!

Today I present  Pahana Peacock who is beautiful but not quite the handsome chap

that Ponar Peacock from yesterday’s blog is!

"I shall sit her until Ponar's perch becomes clear for me to take over!"  said Pahana conspiratorially!

“I shall sit just here  until Ponar’s perch becomes available  for me to take over!” said Pahana conspiratorially!

Here is Pahana and a friend….

They didn't really have anything to say to each other that day!

Pahana went off for a break…

Sometimes you just need to get away from it all....

Sometimes you just need to get away from it all….

....and relax!

….and relax!

But I think Pahana has had enough now…

"And that's all from me!" said Pahana!

“And that’s all from me!” said Pahana!

Peacock in Istanbul….Peacock in Istanbul!!

So we are now on holiday in Turkey and arrived at our villa late last night. We had a stop off in Istanbul on the way and had time for a leisurely lunch.

Oh joy came upon me as I was munching lunch, in the form of wildfowl and water fowl in the surrounding area!

I’m sure you already know which critter I’m going to show you photos of…..

May I introduce….Ponar Peacock

At first he wouldn't look at me so I took full advantage and snapped away!

Just a few more now…..

"Hmmm!" Said Ponar, "I think I've had enough photographer lady....you may leave!"

“Hmmm!” Said Ponar, “I think I’ve had enough photographer lady….you may leave!”

"Are you listening? ENOUGH! Please leave NOW!"

“Are you listening? ENOUGH! Please leave NOW!”

Ponar then decided to ignore me!

Then he ignored me some more!

That’s All!
