Another Beautiful Pattern in Nature

This guy was chillin’ in the gravel and was surprisingly calm. Usually they run when they see the camera. I just can’t get over the colors in their plumage. So, so beautiful.

I’d never gotten close enough to see the patterns of the feathers below a peacock’s neck. What an amazing design–almost like fish scales, but nicer colors.

You can see them better here.

OK, everyone, have a great Labor Day weekend if you celebrate, and a wonderful weekend otherwise! We are going out of town for a week, so I’ll be back here around the 15th.

    They are so beautiful. I’m amazed you could get this close.

    AMAZING ! I’ve never, repeat NEVER seen one this close (at rest) . . . and loving it.

  4. I recently learned that most birds have vision in the ultraviolet spectrum. To another bird, those iridescent peacock feathers probably have an astonishing glow!
