Majestic Colours

I just love the colours in a peacock feather: blue, green, purple and a little bit of gold.  The peacock is a beautiful and majestic animal and is a symbol of integrity and beauty. The different colours in peacock feathers can be explained by just two factors: pigments, and simple structures in the feathers that interfere with incident light.

Peacock Spreading its Feathers

Peacock spreading its feathers. Every branch carries a series of brightly coloured spots. The actual colour depends on the exact position of the spot on the branch and on the angle of the incident light.
