Who's A Pretty Boy Then?

We visited Blair Castle at Blair Atholl and whilst Husband clambered around the castle I wandered around the grounds and came across this peacock. He was really friendly and was obviously used to close scrutiny and admiration.

I used the "double macro" feature on my new camera and managed to get these shots.

Meanwhile Mrs Peacock was sitting nearby in her drab colours being completely ignored!

Always think it is so unfair that poor Mrs has the dull colours, and he does all the strutting and showing off, and gets all the attention.
Lovely camera-work

Love Granny

Lovely photos! It seems so unfair that his better half is so dull.

Thank you for your recent comments on my blog.
