We saw this carved wooden Peacock in the lobby of the 'Fairy Maiden Mountain' Hotel during our most recent vacation in China. The carving was originally a tree stump, which I thought was really creative. It was early in the morning and this part of the lobby was still dark, so I needed to use the pop-up flash on the MZ-3 to get a shot. Darn lens left a flash shadow on the bottom of the carving and floor which I did not see until the developed film came back, oh well, so I had to crop that out.
