I thought of including the photo of the peacocks at Scone Palace in my last blog post – and didn’t - but because Katrina mentioned them in her comment I decided to show my photos after all! The white peacock was beautiful but there was no way she was going to have a face on picture taken! I turned this way; she turned the other. I turned that way; she turned away! I’d love to have seen a white display tail, but as I think she was a SHE - no long tail feathers spreading out behind – that wasn’t going to happen!
However, this was the big show off though! He was all for showing his magnificent tail feathers to all and sundry. What a beautiful bird strutting around between the tables and chairs of the overspill tearoom!
He didn’t mind in the least having his picture taken!
I wonder why it is considered unlucky to take peacock tail feathers indoors? I googled the question, so look here for some of the comments.
and here’s a bit of the detail.
Talk again soon.
