Our neighbours across the street recently installed a new glass door in front of their standard-issue wooden front door. They have also recently acquired a live-in maid so their house is undergoing rather a cleanliness transformation (we could all do with such?) and the new door sparkles like a mirror.
In an earlier post I wrote about the day I caught a peacock challenging his reflection in our bedroom balcony door to a duel. Yesterday Marius was being domestic in the kitchen (we don't have a live-in maid) when he spotted this young peahen admiring herself:

This is another picture (which I took with my telephone) through our kitchen window in May:
Luckily there was no damage done, and he didn't disturb Floyd, who is asleep at the back end of the car.
