Wonderful World Wednesday - Peacock feathers

After our Wetlands walk last week we headed to The Gorge. I had noticed that the Peacock's had been moulting and most of their tail feathers were gone and growing new ones. I thought perhaps, just perhaps we might find a tail feather in the bushes so the look was one to see what we could see!!

Little did I know that we would come home with SOOOO many wonderful samples of Peacock feathers!! I did end up finding a tail feather, the one with the eye on it and with the help of my beautiful girls we found feathers from all over the Peacock's body!!

We had such a great time that after Sapphire's sleep we ended up going back and that's when Hannah found 2 MORE eye tail feathers!! She was over the moon with her find!!
They are sooo amazing to look at and study, each one with it's delicate details.
